Kids,guns,bullies and moving out of the situation

Published September 14, 2012 by crayolasandcombatboots

While on Facebook today there was a post about a loaded gun being confiscated at the Middle School that my Daughter went to last year. It was very unnerving that the school system’s Facebook page had not posted anything. The news channel that had put it on Facebook said that it didn’t know of any intentions to actually use it or not. What the hell, if a person brings a loaded gun to school there is a reason!!!

I am thinking it had something to do with bullying. My Daughter went to the school for all 3 years of Middle School and was bullied all 3 years.She is slightly learning disabled and needs extra help in her schoolwork. She is slightly socially awkward just like me. She is slightly overweight and is getting very tall(5 ft 8 in at 14). She has been called smelly,weird and has actually been physically assaulted at school.

My family and I are seriously considering moving out of this city. The only good public school in this city is where my son goes to. It is a stand alone Gifted program. They are rated #5 in the whole state. The question is where do we move to.there will always be bullies and there will always be guns everywhere. Where do you find a “good” public school system that is good all the way from Elementary school through High School. Where do you find all this and social and racial acceptance. In our modern society it is rare to find it all.

This is the link that started this whole thinking process
