Mother of Bullied Student Seeks School Principal's Ouster
Posted on Apr 29, 2012
In a news story that was published earlier today, after repeated episodes of bullying by another group of students, the mother of a junior high school student has circulated a petition seeking to have her son's principal fired. According to the bullied student's mother, the punishments levied by the school's principal against the students responsible for the bullying weren't sufficiently severe, and therefore proved particularly ineffective in stemming the bullying against her son.
Apparently, the mother of this student isn't alone in her feelings, as she amassed over 700 signatures on her online petition in the span of one week.
