Bullying and Harassment at a Christian School

This morning I became aware of yet another story about a child being bullied at her school.  The reddit user, heiressapparent, wrote an essay that details the bullying and sexual harassment rampant at her Christian school.  I can't say that I'm all that shocked at the abuse going on in a private Christian school, but then again, it shouldn't matter what type of school it is when we're talking about bullying, should it?

She posted the entire essay on imgur.com after taking screen captures of what appears to be her Facebook page.  I found it a little difficult to read, so instead I decided to save the screen captures and post them on my blog as well.  Her story speaks for itself, and is definitely worth the read.

Keep in mind that we are talking about a 14 year old here.

This disgusts me, plain and simple.  No child should be subjected to this kind of abuse.

  2. If you think that bullying is just a part of everyday school life, then you are wrong. The Bible very clearly commands that Christians must act lovingly towards others.
    Bullying is a problem that has been studied in schools worldwide, but there is little research on bullying within Christian School Winnipeg. The research result is that all christian schools are safe from Bullying and Harassment. We would like to think our Christian schools are places of safety.
