Re: “Complaint filed against Durham Public Schools for high suspension rates of kids with disabilities

I know of a child at Glenn School in Durham County that has been singled out and now bullied for his ADHD status (now by the students especially in the cafeteria) and nothing is being done to protect or assist him. There is this one child that had been harassing him since 2nd grade (now 4th grader) and the principal knows this. This child takes his food off his tray (no one ever sees it), but when he tries defend himself (he gets in trouble). Now this child has other students harassing him in the cafeteria (it is very unruly in the cafeteria) . I have been there on several occasions to have lunch and the students are all over the place). This child was attacked by 3 students at Glenn School in Durham NC and he is now suspended for 5 days because the principal says (He attacked 3 students). They used the word "attacked" for him defending himself and fighting back because no one was concerned about his well being and safety. How is a child going to love school and learn when they aren't safe at school. ..... ....... ..... There was another occasion when I was at Glenn School during snack and recess (1st grade class) while outside there were 2 bigger boys beating up on another boy outside on the playground. The teacher and assistance teacher were sitting talking not watching the students in their class. The 1st grade teacher had to intervene and break up the fight or assault. This was reported to the principal. Someone should really supervise the supervisors in charge over there at Glenn School. The poor performance of this school reflects back on the leadership of this school. There need to be some changes. Thank you. (Volunteer)
