Why do you think that the school expelled Haylee for standing up for Paige in a fight? If you were the pricipal, would you have taken such drastic measures?

If you were in Haylee's place, would you have stood up for Paige if it meant getting expelled? Why did the kids make fun of Paige? Were those things worth causing a person their life, why or why not?

Nischal Bandi's comment, January 30, 2013 3:54 PM
I believe Haylee was expelled from her school for supporting her friend Paige in a fight because the school does not want to support violence, and Haylee supported Paige's violent act. If I was the principal of Haylee's school I would have suspended Paige and Haylee temporarily, but not expelled them. I would not have stuck up for Paige if I were in Haylee's position because supporting a friend and getting expelled does not sound as good as remaining neutral. I don't remember anywhere in the article mentioning Paige being made fun of, but maybe that is why she started a fight. No, in no way was it worth it to make fun of a person's size and hair color for them to lose their own life because they might not agreed with what you thought, but eventually they couldn't take it and killed themselves.

I agree with you about suspending Haylee, and also I agree that making fun of the girls until they committed suicide was wrong; but, I disagree with you about why Haylee was expelled, and standing up for Paige. I re-read the article and realized that Haylee was the one bullied, sorry about that error. I believe that Haylee was suspended because the school most likely didn't know the whole story and thought that Haylee was just fighting without a meaningful reason. Also, I would have stood up for Haylee because it seemed as though the girls only had each other as friends, and no one else was a true friend to them.

This article is written for parents whose children were or are bullied. Most of the time parents don't feel the same pain as children do. They don't understand what it is like to be bullied.This article is very helpful for parents yet sometimes there are no solutions. This article is very helpful for parents yet sometimes there is no solution. I think it is wonderful to get bullying articles out into the world so people can read them and wont bully.

Washington state teacher placed on leave again in pupil bullying case

Washington state teacher placed on leave again in pupil bullying case | Nischal's Article about Bullying | Scoop.it
A videotaped bullying incident of a Gig Harbor, Washington, boy has prompted a disciplined teacher to be placed on administrative leave again.
Nischal Bandi's insight:

Do you think there are a lot of adult bullies out there, or do you think bullies are mainly comprised of kids? Do you think this kid was probably weak, and less active than most people in his grade? If the same thing happened to you would you stay at the same school, or would you go to a new school? Do you think the teacher should have been fired or suspended from teaching for life instead of getting a temporary suspension?

Every stage of life has a bully, from the nursery to the nursing home; no matter how old you get, there will still be someone who seems out to get you. Judging from the article that said he was smaller than all of the other kids, Gig was most likely a little weaker than the rest of the kids. I would go to a new school because the kids and teacher had bullied me and I wouldn't have been able to look at the school without worrying about what would happen.
Nischal Bandi's comment, January 30, 2013 4:01 PM
I agree about how you think everywhere you go there is always a bully no matter what age you are. Gig is not the boy's name, and I would think he was substantially weaker and smaller than the other boys in his grade. I think I would move to a different school because I would have a bad relationship with the kids who bullied me, and they would probably continue to bully me. I think John Rosi should have been suspended from teaching for life because it seems clear he is not suitable for teaching or interacting at all with kids.
Addy Hricik's comment, January 30, 2013 4:52 PM
Sorry, I wasn't done, here's the rest.
I think the teacher should have been fired for life because he traumatized the student and didn't stop the other kids from bullying the kid. If I were in the position of the principal or headmaster, I would have fired the man and not waited until a video of the incident was released again.

The narrator isn't rude for not signing the card, but the narrator not signing the card shows that Billy hurt her feelings enough for her not to sign the card. It also tells you that she felt no sympathy for those who had shown none for her. I would sign the card because I would feel bad about for him losing his mother. But, a card couldn’t save his cruel personality, only he could change that. It sounds like a very realistic story because children are insensitive towards others who are obese, and often feel as if they should be bullied.
Carlin Weinberg's curator insight, January 24, 2013 4:47 PM

This story seems realistic, yet not. It is realistic beacuse of the actions of the kids. For instance, you might not sign the card if you hate someone. It is not realistic because I don't think kids would play with dead birds.

Jake Jamison's curator insight, January 24, 2013 8:42 PM

The card is for your "deepest sympathies" for Billy and his family. Dorothy pauses for a minute because Billy had been so mean to her, and then doesn't put anything. I think I would of been the same as Dorothy because he had been so mean to her. I would think this is a true story. My reasoning is that here is your usual bullying. Billy calls her names and then Dorothy doesn't do anything. Then you have Dorothy who returns the bullying when she doesn't sign the card. I would think many victims of bullying would try to bully the bully back.
