GALLATIN, Tenn. –The family of a Sumner County middle school student plans to sue the Board of Education because of ongoing bullying and what the family views as a lack of enforcing a zero tolerance policy against bullying.
Kim Woods said her son Bryson, 13, was first bullied and attacked at Rucker-Stewart Middle School in October.
During the attack Bryson was whipped with a leather belt by a classmate while other kids held him down in a locker room as they changed clothes following P.E.
“He said, ‘I am going to whip me a little kid today’ and apparently that was me,” Bryson said. “He got me by the throat and they pushed me up against the locker.”
He continued, “Then he got me in a choke, they held me down and they whipped me several times.”
