Bullied teen told school official about abuse one week before suicide - The Globe and Mail

Bullied teen told school official about abuse one week before suicide - The Globe and MailHaving spoken to one of the world's leading bullying experts, I learned that this is not an isolated case in that school district and that the school authorities had been advised about the need ot take action in earlier bullying campaigns but failed to do so.
As supportive as I am of schools and the challenges they face, when a school district learns of a persistent problem affecting the safety and wellbeing of their students and fails to follow advice they received to address those risks, heads should roll.
