Mom Writes to Obama About Bullying in Schools

Mom appeals to Obama for changes in Federal law to enable parents to sue schools and parents of bullies after her son committed suicide.

It's bad enough that she's lost her son; now her daughter is being bullied and taunted with reminders of her brother's death. Masika Bermudez-Carrasquillo "helped to get a new anti-bullying law passed in Georgia. The law, which pushes schools to aggressively investigate bullying incidents and provide counseling to victims, is scheduled to go into effect in 2011."
