PERSISTENCE YIELDS RESULTS

Last school year, many of you followed our family's bullying saga. Thanks for the cheers. The most challenging part was dealing with an abusive teacher. Never underestimate the power of a few (in our case 2) determined people. We: 

• Wrote, called, emailed, and met with anyone and everyone, sometimes several times each. 

• Jumped hurdles, scaled walls, and made lateral moves. 

• Assembled a team of advisors (educators, therapists, medical doctors, social workers, hate in school & diversity experts, other affected families, and supportive school staff). 

• Went over the heads of the unsympathetic. 

• Contacted local politicians. 

• Persevered. 

• Proved that our son was telling the truth. 

• Showed our son that we will do anything to protect him no matter the consequences for us. 

• Educated the ignorant on what happens when teachers abuse the power in their relationships with students. 

• Held the abuser and their superiors accountable. 

• Protected our kid. 

• Love the tens of thousands of fantastic teachers who sacrifice to pursue their calling. Thank you. 


You can do this. You can make a difference if you know there is a problem; address it as often as required, for as long as necessary.
