Hello, Moms! I joined this group because my 10 year old daughter has experienced bullying at her school and school administration, the regional office and even the district has done nothing to help her. She is being tormented by an older girl who is conniving and knows how to work her charm with adults. She has been teased, socially excluded, and publicly humiliated. The school staff continues to downplay this bullying to "girl drama" and "bickering". We are moving to another area so she will be able to be transferred to another school. The girl that has been tormenting my daughter has endured no consequences. The principal, assistant principal, and teachers have had the nerve to blame my daughter for the bullying and that she instigates it! I am in Florida and there are laws which prohibit bullying of any kind. School administration is required to follow a protocol. I am appalled how school officials are not held accountable for continuously violating the law. Our children have the right to attend a safe learning environment. Enough is enough! We as mothers have to be our child's advocate. No one else will fight for them.
