Harassment of students in schools is a huge problem that is difficult to fight. New tragic cases of intimidation of children are constantly being brought up. When someone looks or behaves differently, immediately they become the target of malicious jokes. Those who aren’t very resistant and cannot cope with the attacks, tend to have serious emotional problems and are afraid of going to school.
Sometimes it’s even worse. Bullied kids attempt suicide, because it seems to them that no one can help them and taking their own life will be the best way out.
Hannah Combs had just started learning in high school, when something terrible happened to her. A teenage boy poured Super Glue on her head.
I felt a terrible burning feeling. It seemed to me that my head was on fire. It was horrible – said the victim.
Her father, a retired soldier, was furious at how his daughter was treated. In addition, the school didn’t feel responsible in any way and didn’t even want to talk about the incident. The assistant principal even criticized his intense intervention!
The girl went to a doctor, who confirmed first degree burns. Along with her mother, they decided to cut their hair off to show their support.
