Hello, I am sickened that the school system in the majority of the communities DONT CARE. My son experienced being bullied for at least 5 years that I know of, maybe more, in elementary and middle school. We lived in a small community and thought we were in a good place. Our son had an IEP with no improvement in all those years. The teachers would have just rather he was not even there. They didn't help him at all so he was flunking class after class. I didn't know what to do or how to help him. My heart was breaking for him. Most days he would come home in tears, I tried to couch him and resolve it ourselves but nothing worked. The final straw was when I found a letter about killing himself if the kids didn't stop, I was never ment to see this he told me later. I was terrified but so glad we had a chance to change his life. We have since moved to community that takes care of its own, with a top rated school with under 225 students K-12. The move has saved our sons life. He is now a Junior in High School, has confidence and is an A, B student. He still has an IEP for reading and writing and is now reading at a 5th grade level. This is the damage he will have to undure for awhile to come. Our son is planning to attend college after he graduates from High School. WE ARE SO PROUD OF HIM.
