Heartland Boy Opens Up About Being Bullied

A Heartland boy talks about his personal struggle with bullying.

He doesn't want to be identified, but said everyday he goes to school in fear, wanting so badly not be there at all.

His dad has known about the bullying at Ralston Middle School, but became even more frustrated when another student recently threatened to kill his son. But, the bullying was much more serious and included allegations that a teacher wasn't doing what he could to stop it from happening.

"He (the bully) will start trying to rough me up, not rough me up but trying to get me going in a fight,” said the student. "The worst I've ever done is ... I screamed at him to knock it off."

WOWT Six News asked if the teacher ever stepped in to stop the bullying. The student said no.

WOWT Six News talked with Ralston's Superintendent. He said he stands by his school, adding that they are very proactive when it comes to bullying.
