Kaukauna schools finally get it right
So we can now refer to the Kaukauna school bullying story as actual bullying?
I thought that's what it was from the start when I first brought up the story on the PhilCast.
I'm still not sure what the initial news conference we covered on the show was supposed to be all about. Remember at the time the district trying to explain it away?
It came off to me as the district basically saying this wasn't actual bullying the dad posted about on Facebook....it was just some rough play in gym class.
Now a turnabout....with Sup. Mark Duerwaechter saying there was indeed bullying involved.
After updating the school board last night, he now says it's been a very difficult matter for the families and the school district. He says they'll use the experience to make the district a better one.
That's the bottom line here....addressing an issue and trying to come up with ways to help make the situation better for the kids....not dodging an issue....which that whole initial news conference sure smelled of to me.
Duerwaechter now says he hopes to start a student assistance program that would reach out to victims of bullying and also students with alcohol or drug problems.
Kudos on that....and I am sure the dad involved in the original story must be feeling better about the whole thing now after the admission by the school system that his kid was indeed bullied.
