Several weeks ago I got a new student. He has several brothers one goes to our school and another one goes to a different school in our district. His brother that goes to the other school was involved in an incident that made the news. He is accusing another student of bullying him about being different, and telling him that he was going to bring a gun to school. Anyway I don't know either of the kids involved. Mom was not happy with the way the school has handled the situation and has mentioned getting a lawyer involved and took it to the local news media. This happened at the beginning of the week and the first thing my student said when he came back to school was ".... I was on Tv!" I have tried really not to even acknowledge the fact that I even know anything that is going on with the brother. I didn't want to start anything with my student. Today my student comes to me when I pick them up at lunch and he tells me " some kids were making fun of my freckles" I said I was sorry they hurt his feelings and then continued to get my kids ready to go inside. He didn't say anything and I didnt say anything. Now I'm thinking about the day and I keep asking myself did I handle this ok or should I have investigated and done something about it. Im really not sure how to take this Mom. She has all ready lied to me about some stuff. Btw I am in no way saying that this incident didnt happen with the brother and I am in no way saying she doesn't have a legitimate case against the school. Just wondering what you would do?
