School not safe for all who attend

I read not too long ago about the bullying a boy took at Rolling Hills Elementary School and how his father had gone to some very extreme measures because he felt no one was listening to him. Several years ago, a friend of my son went there and was constantly bullied by several children because the young man was kind of overweight and a new kid in school.

My son and the child’s mom both went to the school to find out what was going on, as her son was “faking” being sick just so he didn’t have to attend class. The school literally turned their heads, stating this type behavior was not tolerated there and they had yard people out there and saw to it that none of that was going on.

After complaining several times and still nothing was done, they pulled him out of the school and put him into one that did “care.”

Why did no one look into the accusations? No child, and I mean no child, should have to endure that and then see that the school couldn’t care less.

I had to laugh when I read that the school had received the California Distinguished School award. Maybe it had to do with the academics, because it sure wasn’t because of how they look after their students. The pupil services director made a statement that the school is “very safe!” Apparently not for all children.

    The handling of that matter by the authorities is shameful. Don't we spend enough tax dollars on these public schools and what kind of results do we get? The people around here are idiots and their kids are too. It really sucks. I spoke briefly with Mr. Fuedal about what happened and all I can say is ''shame'' on the cops, courts, school administrators and irresponsible parents along with their equally loathsome kids.

    Rich, his name is spelled Feudner. If you look at the comments regarding this case in newspapers across the country, you will see a common trend towards ignoring this issue. RHE IS an excellent school academically and that's wonderful. They just need a little work on communication and follow-up when dealing with "uncomfortable" problems.

    Most of the time if you dig down in one of these situations where they look the other way, it's going to turn out to be....racial. There is tremendous pressure from the federal government on down the line to racialize every single decision, all premised on a near-mythological hand-wringing obsession over the rights of "minorities". Has anybody looked to see who a "minority" is in California now? (School-aged population is 25% white).
