I think bullying is a very serious issue, whether it is Cyber Bullying or interpersonal bullying. When I was growing you were bullied by teens that you know. Now a days teens are being bullied by others teens that they do not know. BPS, please do your best to assure they our children are safe in and outside of school. My daughter has encounter on several occasions at the MBTA verbal bulling by a large number of teenage girls and if a MBTA police office had not been there God knows what would have happened to her. I am terrified to send to school each day.
