    Tough question they should of been charge. my ass there tough questions. damn media is so much ignorance here


    "OSTON – School officials in western Massachusetts didn't follow all the anti-bullying advice they were given months before a harassed freshman girl committed suicide, according to a consultant who offered the tips.

    Barbara Coloroso said she consulted with parents and administrators months before 15-year-old Phoebe Prince hanged herself in January. Authorities say she endured months of verbal assaults and threats, mostly in school and in person, although some of the bullying occurred on Facebook and in other electronic forms.

    "The questions to ask are: Did they follow their own rules and did they keep Phoebe safe? Obviously not. And, did they deal effectively with the bullies? Obviously not," Coloroso told The Associated Press Tuesday.

    Nine fellow students face charges in connection with the girl's death, including two teen boys charged with statutory rape and a clique of girls charged with stalking, criminal harassment and violating Phoebe's civil rights. School officials won't be charged, even though authorities say they knew about the bullying.

    School officials have not returned messages left by The Associated Press."

    Opposing Views: Finally, Someone Stands Up for Phoebe Prince

    At this point i am trying to see if i can reach my school board members here to start focus on this.

    Another news on cnn blog...

    "An 8 year-old-boy in Texas tried to commit suicide after his teacher did nothing about the bad bullying he faced every day. The school’s response: have him sign a ‘no suicide’ agreement. Apparently this is standard procedure in this school district. Any student who tries to harm him/herself has to sign it. But this kid is in second-grade…and dyslexic."

    It's a pleasure to see the sympathy for those that are preyed upon. The two clowns that posted above me must have been bullied at school.

    i would be kind of interested to know what makes a person think the needless deaths of two children is a good launching pad for a little political bullshit.

    nah, i've met assholes before.

    nevermind

    first off he didn't kill himself, second off he drop from two storty window cause of bullying. this when a student was told to write this on a chalk board this means as much as an ant.

    the teacher ignore the bully from the start. and he has dyslexic. if you think its students fault for suicide you are mistaking. and it was written on a chalk board.

    hum... i think you need to do some research before commenting next time.

    Why be sarcastic at all? These stories are not something that should be laughed at or made fun of. A life has been lost, show some respect.

    This is just sad. Bullying is taken very seriously at my kid's school, so it rarely happens. A friend of mine's son was bullied and the school officials did nothing, so they changed schools. Crazy.

    Did you see some of the comments for the Yahoo story?
