Bullied at School? Compassionate Help for Victims
Nothing is more heartbreaking than watching your child suffer. In cases of bullying it is important for parents to feel confident that the teachers, supervisors and school district are doing all they can to protect the victim and create a safe environment for all students. Despite the creation of New York State’s Dignity for all Students Act established in 2012, bullying still frequently occurs. In addition, in New York City alone, 1 in 5 high school students have reported being bullied either at school or over the internet during any given year. If your child has been a victim of bullying, we would like to hear their story.
School Should Create A Safe Environment
The law mentioned above was created to foster an environment free from discrimination, intimidation, taunting, harassment, and bullying. If a student is behaving like a bully, they are in violation of the law. If a teacher fails to report bullying they’ve seen or heard about, they are in violation of the law. If the supervisor fails to intervene, they are in violation of the law. Additionally, if a school district fails to put proper protocols in place, they have violated the law because they did not do all they could to create a safe environment. Sobo & Sobo is passionate about helping the victims of bullying. If your child is suffering, you have nothing to lose by giving us a call to set up a free consultation.
