I'm in Northern California. My best friend's son is being harrassed and bullied in school. He is a fourth grader and this has been going on for 3 years now. He is constantly teased, physically assaulted, harrassed, etc. His mom has tried to get the school to take action, has gone to the superintendent, the police, etc. Her son keeps getting all the punishment while the group of boys who bully him are mostly left alone. My friend's son has had two suspensions for defending himself while being jumped by this group of boys. The bullies have followed him home, knocking him off his bike, and assaulting him in the front yard of his home. My friend called the police one that one but because the boys are all 9 - 10 and this town has the mentality of "Boys will be boys", nothing was done.
So I told my friend to get a lawyer but she wants to try to solve this problem before taking legal actions against the boys and the school district.
What else should she do? She has contacted the teacher, principal, superintendent, and the police.

lawyer, document, and if possible take the son to the hospital (after calling cops) everytime he is assaulted. i think if this is persistent she needs to get the law involved! poor kid. i worry about that so much!

Tell your friend to get a lawyer and sue the school. go to the police station and file a report and if the police don't do any thing sue them too.
