TO THE EDITOR:

     Why are we trying to cover up bullying?

     Why do we feel the only option to get out of this cycle in Ripon School District is to transfer schools?  Are we even asking these parents that are up and leaving why they are leaving?

     What is the percentage of students that leave because of bullying? ...

     These are questions that I and other parents are going without answers to.

     I am a parent of a student in Murray Park, and I am to the point of pulling my child out of this district and going to Green Lake.

     I know I am not the only parent that is thinking about this or have done it.

     It is not acceptable that my child cannot live in his district and go to school there — because the principals are covering up for the mistake of others.

     ... I know we are all so tired of this subject. But you know what I am tired of? Having to fight with my child every day and see fear on his face every day I drop him off.
