Billy's parents claim the the school district isn't doing enough to protect their son, that the bullies don't have consequences for their behavior. So they've sued one of the bullies for assault and battery, and more lawsuits may follow. The family is also considering suing the school district.
Billy's parents have made the choice to keep him in this school, despite his troubles. They want him to learn to fight for what is right, but Billy often begs not to go to school. I don't blame him; he must be scared and tired. I'm not sure I'd make the same choice in their shoes. What do you think? Would you keep your child in a school where they were receiving this kind of treatment, or would you have moved on long ago?
