The Walla Walla School District school bullying policy is a farce! It does nothing! That’s right, I said it — nothing.
I’ve sat back and listened to countless bullying incidents at elementary schools and have come to find out that the schools just give the kids a slap on the wrist and tell them not to do it again or there will be consequences. Hmm.
What consequences? They don’t take recess away, don’t make them write an apology, they don’t suspend them. So, what do they do — nothing!
I’m here to tell you there are no consequences. When is it OK for a child to punch other kids at recess or at school? How many times must a child be allowed to punch or kick a child before being suspended?
Parents write letters, fill out forms and the schools do nothing.
I’ve heard of kids punching kids on a bus, bringing a switchblade to school and telling other kids they are going to kill them or want them dead and the schools do nothing.
So, what is it waiting for? School officials want me to vote on a bond. I can tell you I will not vote “yes” on a bond until I see the schools doing their job!
Stop the bullies now. The Walla Walla School District should do its job
