    I went to a Jr High with much the same name. I got beat up and teased. I got asked to leave at the end of the school year and jack happened to the people who beat me up.

    Life is fair. One sperm, one egg: it's the same chance for every one of us.

    WTF? Why wouldn't the kid with the knife be disciplined? Last time I checked you aren't allowed to bring weapons to school. Sounds like an ideal situation for a lawsuit... (and no, I'm not 'suit happy, but this could definitely be considered legit.)

    No, that is entirely wrong.

    One Sperm + One Egg + random intelligence and personality + random family + random environment + random people who interact with you = a whole lot of chance which is NOT fair

    Because what is the purpose of punishing kids at the end of the school year?

    I imagine that the principle figured he was doing a favor to the kid sending her home early. I know thats what I was told...

    17 years ago and it still hurts like hell.

    It's easy to become a misanthrope in this world. People do messed up things to eachother all the time. It's been like that and will be like that. Human nature.
    I try to be magnanimous as best I can and keep my chin up about things.
    Adolescence is a tough time for just about everyone. I'm surprised I made it through. I still have my scars of course.
    But it's made me strong.
    Try to enjoy the good quiet moments. I savor those.

    thats awful what that kid did. i would sue and get lots of money. she could probably make a cool million off that. i guess this is why i never let people push me around, but i also dont have a disability so people usually never have a reason to make fun of me.

    My brother got suspened from school in 4th grade because he pushed a kid down the stairs. The kid used to tease him and one day he spit in my brothers face. Next thing you know, the kid was at the bottom of the stairs crying.

    Nice, pick on the disabled kid. Really mature. Must make you feel good about yourself to pick on a kid with CP. :rolleyes:

    I love the way the people in charge at the school didnt even bother to find out what happened. I wonder if their attitude towards the disabled student mirrored the bully's attitude. I dont even want to think about what I would do if I were that girl's parent or friend. As if having CB isnt hard enough. :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

    So setting fire to her hair is condonable because it's the end of the school year?

    This issue is a little more serious than a kid cutting on the cafeteria line.

    That's just sick, and I'm not sure if the behavior of the other student or the administration is worse. I'm sure from their point of view it was just easier to "nicely" keep the kid away from school and avoid having to deal with the problems that she "generated" by being there, rather than dealing with the parents of some socially maladjusted kid who pulls a knife on the disabled girl and sets her on fire.

    Good thing I wasn't her parent--I try to be a nice person, and am generally laid back, but if I imagine somebody setting my daughter on fire, I don't know if I'd be able to stop myself from hunting him down, burning his house to the ground, and doing very, very bad things to both him and his parents. Then whoever it was that kicked my daughter out of school.

    Maybe it's a good thing I don't have kids, now that I think about it.

    I know how you feel.
    I'm only a freshmen in high school.
    lived in california untill 11 years old - got picked on
    lived in georgia until 13 years old - got picked on
    currently living in massachusetts - get picked on

    I try to hide the fact that im dyslexic, but some how, people still find out - and make fun of me for it.
    I feel like shi* half the time at school

    sometimes i just wanna say "F*** IT!"

    :(

    (the parents should file a suit)

    That's not true.. some people are products of 2 sperm, one egg or two eggs, 2 sperms (mosaicism and chimeraism)
    or 2 eggs, 1 discarded sperm (parenthogeneisis)

    Ok, I've been studing genetics a little too long these day...

    Let me just say that things do get better.

    Let me also say that in some ways the dyslexia is an advantage because you know why people are picking on you. People suck. People in Jr High and High School Really /Really/ suck.

    My best advice is be a good person. Encourage the people around you to be good people, resist the temptation to do the same to others, be yourself.

    Yes, you are right. I don't think the kid avoided my brother for the rest of the school year. Whimp. :)

    Robert De Niro's character in "This Boy's Life" sums up my thoughts:

    "People like that you gotta hurt 'em. You gotta inflict pain or they'll never leave you alone..."

    Sounds like the CYA tatic to me. This is just horrible. I would be on my High horse with to get some sort of change into that school. I think this would be a valid lawsuit. There is obviously an underling problem there. If nothing else it may prevent stuff like this from happening to someone else.

    My sister and bro' in law just moved to a gambling town recently. My poor 10 yr. old niece, who's about 4 inches taller than all the other kids, has to wear a body brace to help straighten her spine, wears big glasses and always tests at the top of her class has been ganged up on since the first day of class there.

    Some girl from school befriended her for a couple of days and asked if she could give her a makeover. My niece complied and the girl cut all of her bangs completely off down to the scalp. She hasn't been seen since, but my sister found out the girl did it as an initiation stunt to impress a girl gang at school and my niece was the perfect victim.
