In my January Diary I had a paragraph about bullying at my son’s school, and
how the authorities punish everyone involved in an “incident” equally,
without any regard to the circumstances or histories involved. Well, here’s
a very tragic instance from Alaska.
Memo to schoolteachers (I was one myself, briefly): You know who these kids
are, and you know they need your help and support. For God’s sake, try to
do better than this poor kid’s teachers did.
