NOW They’re Listening

From The Record (Canada)

The mother of a nine-year old boy in Ontario is suing the Waterloo Region Catholic School Board and the Region of Waterloo for failing to protect her son from bullying.

Apparently, her kid has been coming home with bruises, cuts, black eyes, fat lips and pencil stab wounds for TWO YEARS.

The  mother has tried to resolve the problems with the parents of the bullies and written dozens of letters to the principal. The school board, trustees, and superintendents haven’t taken her seriously.  Until now.  Maybe because they’re facing a $25,000 lawsuit .

The region’s anti-bullying program (“Imagine … A School Without Bullying”) doesn’t seem to be very effective.  Imagine that.
