On Tuesday, Huntsville, Texas mother Tracey Lanette Murphy voiced her outrage in regards to her daughter’s bullies, and the school district she believes is perpetuating her child’s daily stigma.
Murphy, who posted a video on her Facebook page, lambasted the Huntsville Independent School District, stating her daughter is exposed to emotional abuse “every day” and “she comes home crying about some boy, a group of boys actually, calling her fat.”
A student at Estella Stewart Elementary School, Murphy’s 10-year old daughter has been subjected to mental and physical attacks from fellow students, leaving the girl emotionally drained with contemplations of suicide.
“I have talked to everybody,” Murphy said. “Nobody cares. So my solution is she’s just going to have to stand up for herself. And if that means that she has to fight, oh well, she’s going to fight.”
Murphy continued, saying “Hopefully it’s not one of your kids, and if it is, oh damn well, teach them some manners.”
“I am tired of hearing about children, babies, killing themselves because of bullies,” the concerned mother stated.
Formal complaints to the school district have been largely ignored, as the Huntsville ISD has gone as far halting Murphy from contacting the district. Huntsville has also declined to meet face-to-face with the outraged mom. In a statement to the Houston Chronicle, the Huntsville ISD attempted to defend their stance:
“As a district, we are always going to be sure to provide a safe and secure environment for our kids.”
