School officials attempt to maintain a certain image and in doing so ignores massive issues, such as bullying. When confronted they tend to target certain kids, military/veteran kids who have issues such as depression, anxiety, etc. Not enough adults at the HS and too many are related and share same church and social circle to get fair and unbiased treatment. Too much money and attention spent on sports instead of academics.
