Read the comments on my previous entry about the girl whom the administration worked over.
I think the writer is right who said that a poor white girl could be just as mistreated. These administrative sadists get off on bullying kids they don't think can strike back: whatever their color. I notice that the board didn't have her arrested but ran that through the State's Attorney's office. The board would never let their names be attached to this vicious behavior that they don't investigate themselves or own up to tolerating.
In answer to the person's question about what the girl did, I am not sure. She was alleged to have got into a fight; then I heard that, no, she wasn't in a fight but witnessed it and that the administration wanted her to identify the combattants and she wouldn't.
When does insisting on keeping your mouth shut merit a court case? This is sadistic overkill carried out by the principal and vice principal. When the girl got back to school after the community service sentence, the administration piled on her and told her they could and might send her to a special school and that she had lost her right to apply for scholarships. How's that for solicitude for a student?
