My son is in the kindergarten readiness class, he has learned alot. However, they are suppose to have a zero tolerance for bullies. My son has been abused by 3 different class mates. The first time, he was kicked in the eye and had eyelashes missing. The second time, I was an eye witness, my son was shoved by a boy twice his size into a brick wall and his head slammed into the wall. The third time , my son was chocked on the playground, leaving bruises around the bottom of his neck and collarbone. The education is good but what is being done to keep our children safe from bullies. It is a real problem and I am very concerned.
