The world is full of people who see wrongdoing and do nothing about it. Where do people learn to just keep their mouths shut? Maybe from 8th grade.
In Dayton, Ohio, an eighth grader has been banned from the school prom and class picnic because she told her mother two kids on a school bus were having sex. A Dayton TV station says the girl’s mother told school officials, who promised to investigate. Their investigation concluded that the girl waited too long to tell someone what was happening on the bus on which there were eight adult chaperones.
“If they are not doing anything to the chaperones, how can they punish my daughter?” the mother said. She said her daughter was afraid of saying anything immediately because she didn’t know what the boy would do. “Other students know, and we are afraid of possible retaliation,” she said.
The two kids having sex were suspended, the TV station reports.
