Parent asks: what can be done about bullying in our private school?
"I am looking for some direction on bullying in the private school sector. I am not sure where to start, but feel a great need to get connected, and curtail bullying. I know for a fact that our girls in high school are turning to anti depressant drugs, upper classman boys know it is a right of passage to bully the new lower classmen on campus. Frankly, I am worried that my kid, a boy 6 feet tall, is a wrestler, musician and a nice guy, will fall into this category of rising 9th grade boys. The school take on it has been: talk with the victims to deal or ignore it. And the BEAT goes on!"
