Alena Nightoak takes her own life. A victim of bullying.– Another sad story out of Wisconsin schools.
This is just yet another sad story of the effects of bullying. This was a kind, beautiful young lady. Yet she was bullied endlessly by certain kids who really should be held criminally responsible. She suffered from anxiety and depression. Any one who is bullied suffers from anxiety and depression. It comes with being bullied. She actively spoke out against bullying and had made u-tube videos on being bullied.
I am just waiting for the Marshall High School to come out with a statement saying they ” had no idea.” That seems to be standard for schools caught not doing enough about bullying. The Evansville School District has a huge bullying problem, always has. They have done very little to solve the issues. The administrators in our school will tell anyone who will listen it’s not that bad, example of the silly , understated report they gave at a recent board meeting. But ask any number of parents in the E.S.D. and they can tell you just how bad the bullying is in the district.
If it comes to light the school knew and did little to nothing to prevent the bullying the administrators, and any teacher also need to be held criminally and have civil liability. That is the only way schools are going to start taking it seriously and do some thing about it.
From elementary on up to high school. Evansville School District administrators and certain staff should be ashamed of them selves.
There were two different kids that we are aware of that attempted suicide last year in the Evansville School District because of being bullied. It’s funny how those numbers were not pointed out by the staff at the board meeting.
This is just such a very sad story. It could have been prevented if kids were just taught it’s not o.k. to bully. Some times the bulling starts with the parents. They are or were bullies. Our thoughts and prays are with her family and friends. So very sad.
