I have a 9 year old son who went to a local middle school here in Logansport Indiana and my son had been picked on a couple times and was the one that was to blame for each time and my son was the one who had to eat lunch in the principal’s office, and neither time I was informed. Finally the last time my son told me about it the day before and I went and spoke with the principal and she told me her story about how a lunch lady had seen my son acting inappropriate and immediately took him to the principal I tried to explain to here that these boys told the lunch lady and these boys that told have been picking on my son but she didn’t believe me and said "well after today when he is done eating lunch in the office that will be his punishment and it will be all forgotten". Well thank heavens I know someone who works in lunch room and I went down during my sons lunch and spoke with her and she brought the lady who "seen" my son do what he did, and this lady told me she did not see anything and that she told the principal that 4 boys came up and told her this story. I then made another appointment to speak with the principal that day at the end of the day, told her the whole story and she didn’t want to find out anything. All she said was "well I am just as confused as you are now, this means someone isn't telling the truth". Really? So I let her know that I knew about the bigger bullying at that school. Like how a 4th grader was just arrested that year for beating up a second grader so bad. And that I knew about the 3 third graders jumping a smaller one at recess, a kid who had just had surgery and had stitches that were luckily not ripped open. It took a little girl running and telling the teachers because they were too busy talking. The kids fighting were expelled for a week but nothing happened to the teachers. The principal just had a look of surprise on her face. And then she was really upset when I told her that day was the last day my son was going there and I was pulling him out and he was enrolled just about an hour earlier to one of the country schools, which he loves. That was at the end of last year and my daughter just started there this year and they are so happy. All in all I am glad my son isn’t there anymore but then I feel bad for the kids that are still there and getting picked on. It use to be a great school when my kids father went there and now it has just gotten very bad.
