Ms. Thorne shot down my latest article idea for the school newspaper 🙁

I really wanted write a piece for The Crest that shines a light on what some students have to deal with on a daily basis—bullying. But Ms. Thorne claims “there is no bullying at Sumter Academy” and that I should focus on another topic.

For such a small school, Sumter has more than its share of bullying, with Mora and her gang being the primary instigators. Forget about an article, I could write a series of encyclopedia-sized books on the horrible things I’ve seen them do this semester! With the way they’re going, it’s only a matter of time before someone gets seriously hurt, or worse.

According to the student handbook, Sumter has a ‘Bullying, Harassment, and Intimidation Reporting’ form, but I’ve never seen a copy myself. Even if there is such a form, I can’t see many students here actually filling it out. It’s not like Mora will ever get punished and the aftermath would probably only lead to more extreme bullying, unless things change…
