Deal with bullying issues right away

To the Editor,

Re: District wastes tax dollars while abandoning children facing constant bullying, Letters, May 25.

It is disappointing to hear of an 11-year-old being bullied at school.

It is absolutely shocking to hear that it has not been dealt with and that the bullied child has been removed from school.

The children doing the bullying should be the ones removed from school, not the victim.

This situation needs to be dealt with immediately by the teachers and principal of the school as well as all the parents of the children involved.

The bullies need need help to learn to behave respectfully toward all students before re-entering the education system.

It takes great courage, love and concern for a mother to speak out so openly about her daughter being bullied.

Let this be the catalyst for bullying to always be dealt with immediately in our schools.
