Many students will change schools to escape bullying. In fact, about one out of every 10 students drops out or changes schools because of repeated bullying.
And what do you do when no matter what school you attend, you are still bullied? This was Shainelle’s experience.
She began being bullied in one of her first schools:
“It was a cold day, with about six inches of snow on the ground; I was about a three minute walk from my house after being dropped off by the school bus. I usually did not mind walking the short distance home, but this day was different, for reasons unknown to me some of the kids on the bus took my shoes off my feet, threw it somewhere I did not see and left me to walk home without shoes in that six inches of snow. I remember crying, feeling broken and sorry for myself, I was tired of being bullied and I was especially tired because I thought this school was going to be different. “
