Nominating Lake Asbury Junior High, Middleburg - FL 
My nephew has had his lunch stolen, bullies have gone through his book bag taking things out and while walking home from school a boy who was not suppose to be getting off at my nephew bus stop got off at his stop and broke another kids mail box and told the kids you didn't see anything, or else.  Of course trying to do THE RIGHT THING my nephew came home and told.  We called the parents of the boy who's mail box was broken and told him what happened.  Later, the bully sent two other boys to my home to ask my nephew if he wanted to come out. He went out and the bully was waiting for him in the street.  ...We went to talk to VP on Tuesday.  He said he would bring boy in off the and handle it.  But, after my Nephew was assaulted again, the same VP said, "Oh well unless enough people are willing to say they saw him do it then there is nothing that can be done about it".   I asked to talk to principal and was told that the boy was going to be suspended from the bus and then come to find out he wasn't.  When we called him to find out why nothing happened he said that the boy was punished but can't comment on what the punishment was, which was nothing, since the bully was still on the bus.  I hear this bully is carrying a knife.  These kids are scared of him and the school is saying that until there is a serious injury then there is nothing that's going to be done about it. 

Nominating TOK School, Alaska
My name is Caleb and i am a victim of bulling at tok School, alaska.  I have been picked on, called names and physicaly hurt because of bullies.  At school they push me around and try to pick fights with me.  Now the bullies continue this even after school and think they can get away with it.  Just today a boy stopped me on the road by a friends house.  He pushed me around and hit me in the lower back while i tried to walk away.  I fell and got back up and walked away again. this time he put me in a choke hold, thew me to the ground, and hit me in the back again before walking off laughing.   That is why our school be should be nominated for the "Bullies rule the school award".   Thank you sincerely,  Caleb

Nominating - Errick Road School - Niagara Wheatfield School District - North Tonawanda, NY
I nominate Errick Road School for several reasons.  First of all, they were made aware of a kindergartner in my son's class who was planning an attack on his neighbor and fellow student which involved metal handcuffs and violence.   I know this because my son was brave enough to tell us. I bet the intended victim's family was never made aware of this. This boy not only devised a full plan but coaxed 3 other boys to participate.  The teacher took it seriously, but the parent, Principal and Superintendent did not.  The Superintendent called it "child's play".  The same student was also found to be physically, verbally, and psychologically abusing my son for about 4 months.  The bully fully admitted to it and has no remorse. When we reported it to the Principal, she promised my son he would be safe from now on, and that very day he was threatened again!  When we questioned how this happened, "I didn't get around to addressing it yet." was the response.  The Superintendent said the "bully" doesn't have the problem, my son does!  ...This school breeds bullies, even my son recognizes it at age 6.  How do we expect our children to do the right thing by telling adults when something is wrong if they are continually shut down by the adults in charge.  ...What happened to a safe learning environment?

Nominating - Burrowes Elementary School - Lancaster PA
I nominate Burrowes Elemantary because my granddaughter who is nine has been bullied for the past three years and it is escalating into violence.  The bullies are not being punished but my granddaughter is.  She is the one who has to stay in at recess and gets yelled at if she leaves the teachers side.  They even put her in the ISS (in school suspension) room for recess while the bullies are outside playing.  She gets punched, locked in closets, pushed into walls and numerous other things.  The school does not seem to know how to handle it and at this point we are in fear for my granddaughters life.  Bonnie

Nominating - Jefferson County School District - WV
My son has been the victim of bullying by one particular student since the fourth grade.  We notified the school principal at that time and nothing was done.  Bullying continued... pushing our son into the wall, calling him names, tripping him, knocking his books and school supplies to the floor.  We have injury reports... We met several times with the school principal, teacher, and assistant superintendant.  We notified the superintendant and the school board but to no avail.  No obvious disciplinary action was taken ...we removed our son from the public schools and sent him to private school.  ...The bully has continued to harass and inflict injury... West Virginia has a zero-tolerance policy on bullying, but this school district does not have the guts to take action against bullies.  Our son is now in seventh grade and has returned to the public school system.  Immediately, the bullying from the same student continued... The school district refuses to take action and the middle school he attends even named this bully as "Student of the Week." ...we are forced to take our case to the state department of education, the attorney general, and/or seek private legal action against the district. Brett

Nominated - The Public Schools of Fairless Hills - PA
Reason - "My son, has Cerebral Palsy, ADHD and heart disease. He has been bitten, scratched, slammed into trash cans or walls, harassed, and was hog tied with a jump rope.  After the bullies tied up his legs and feet, they wrapped it around his neck.  The school NEVER notified me.  I only found out because my son said his neck hurt.  The school did nothing.  The principal told me it was a "privacy issue" and she could not tell me if and what the disciplinary action was toward the other children involved.  She has ignored me and has blown off meetings I have tried to have about all of the bullying.  When she was finally confronted face to face, she told me my son started it all."

Girls Take School to Court, Saying It Ignored Bullying - Lawsuit Alleges Teachers, Administrators Said There Was Nothing They Could Do, By Durrell Dawson

Nominated - Portland Middle and High schools - OR
"I would like to nominate Portland Middle and High schools for this award (both cause i have been physically touched in both). i am a heavy student and carry some of the wight in my chest. i have been sexually assaulted in both schools through the years and every time we would have meetings they would do what they said they would do for about a week then taper off. it eventually got to the point i couldn't go to school. But the point remains this schools does not seem to care what happens and have an excuse for absolutely everything."  Julie

Nominated - Russell Sage JHS 190 Queens - NY
"My son is a little dark skined and has been called a monkey and told that he should not be in the same planet with them (kids). My child tried talking with the school social worker about how some kids in his class kept calling him fat, dirty and ugly. ...When my child complained, ...the school counseler informed me that my son seems to have emotional problems. ...This made my son depressed. I even took him to another counselor outside school. When she evaluated him she informed me that he was very hurt about how the children treated him. When I spoke with the Principal she told me that he had to deal with it and move on.  A few days later my son gets into a fight and he was given a black eye. Now my son is suspended for 16 days and the other child got detention. ...This is called "Zero Tolerance" - the school tolerates at it's own discretion..."  A. F.

Nominated - St. Marys Area School District, St Marys (Middle School) - PA
Reason - "My daughter is in Learning Support and the incidents started when she was in 7th grade.  We didn't even know she was being bullied but I had seen signs that there could be something seriously wrong.  ...The bully was spreading gossip and calling her names and said daily would remind her that she had no friends (not true).  The taunting caused her to hate school, her family and worse of all herself.  ...I wanted them to remove this girl from my daughter's classes.   They told me that they couldn't and wouldn't.  They would remove my daughter and put her into classes for children under her abilities.  I explained that I felt that my daughter was the one being punished.  They said that situations like these will help her grow and she will be better in the long run for being bullied.  I was outraged. ...Pennsylvaina needs to do something or we will lose our youth!"      Michele
