Oh, ok. Well, how long has she been where she is? It's only been a few weeks, right? Has she tried to integrate with these girls? I just don't think you are going to do her any favours by pulling her out of school and home schooling her, because it is not going to teach her to handle difficult situations. Does she play any sport? Have any interests? Can she get involved in with any team sports through the school? Or special interest clubs?

she has totally switched school she has nobody and maybe they could possibly be bullying her because sometimes she hears them talking about her

Is that it? They won't talk to her? So there is no actual bullying going on, they just won't talk to her? Where are her friends from last year? Unless she has totally switched schools, they should be still around right? After all, school is about learning when you are in class. When you are not in class (eg. lunch), surely she can still seek out her friends? I'm confused as to why she is so unhappy other than that the popular girls won't talk to her.

Are they bullying her, excluding her from their group or is she upset because she isn't popular?

Can I ask WHY she hates these girls and her teachers? What is going on to make her feel this way? Have you talked to her teachers? Have you discussed this with the principal. I think you really need to get further to the bottom of what is going on. If there is bullying involved, it CAN be addressed by the school. You can't just assume that because your daughter is coming home crying that you know the full story.

Just giving up and deciding to home school is not getting to the bottom of the problem. Instead, you are teaching your daughter that when times get tough, you just run away. How about doing some problem solving first? She's been back at school how long? It's not REALLY giving it a good chance to resolve it.

Being near people we dont get along with is a part of life. My daughter is in grade 8 and also in as class full of people she does not like. I refuse to switch her class, or home school her because this is an important lesson in life. Everyone needs to learn how to be around people they dislike, or that dislike them.
