Philly Mom Furious After Daughter Is Bullied For Over A Year
A mother is fed up with the way school officials and even police are handling the bullying of her child and now she’s taking her concerns to the local news. Yamina Zahir tells ABC13 that her daughter, Amina, has been repeatedly bullied at Commodore John Barry Elementary for more than a year.
On Wednesday, the mom said her 8-year-old came home from school with a large patch of hair missing from the back of her head. Amina said she told her teacher another female student cut her hair with scissors, but claims the teacher did not respond. Yamina said she also spoke with her daughter’s teacher and school counselor and even called the police to the school.
But still, no action has been taken.
“Nothing is happening. Nothing is being addressed. Someone is really going to get hurt out of this situation. She could’ve stabbed my daughter. Anything could’ve happened. She cut my daughter’s hair off. Who would do something like that?”
SMH, shame on Commodore John Barry Elementary for letting this issue escalate like this!
