Steve, 9 years later there is still a lot of bullying and the principals, counselors, and teachers don't care. My daughter came home with an anti- bullying ambassador award today. This piece of paper means nothing to my daughter, she says she wants something done about the bullying going on at this school. BOI must be a teacher or have some kind of affiliation to this school.

A LOT OF TEACHERS ARE VERY ABUSIVE TO CHILDREN. SOME HAVE PREJUDICE TENDENCIES. THERE ARE JUST A FEW GOOD TEACHERS. THE NEW PRINCIPAL DOES NOT CARE. THERE ARE A LOT OF BULLIES IN THIS SCHOOL. THESE BAD TEACHERS EXPECT PARENTS TO TEACH THE CHILDREN. THE FACILITIES ARE NICE.
