Jared High, was a victim of bullying, and it drove him to end his own life. Shortly thereafter, his mother, Ms. Brenda High, along with other parents and concerned people, positioned themselves to take action to stop bullying in schools.
A learning environment defeats its purpose, when in its ground, children feel fearful, condemned, threatened. and in despair. Yet, bullying is common-place in our education system. It has driven enough children to emotional stress and bullycide, and it has hurt many, many families.
It’s time we take a stand as parents and as concerned people, and speak up against bullying, rallying for solutions and actions, to allow our children freedom to learn in bully-free schools.
