Jan 19, 2013 – Shocking: School Instructs Girl To Reduce Breasts After Bullying From Classmates
A Missouri mother was shocked to hear an official at her 13-year-old daughter’s school district suggest that the 13-year-old get a breast reduction surgery to stop other classmates from bullying her.
Tammie Jackson says her daughter Gabrielle is being sexually harassed
because of her large breasts at Central Middle School in Moline Acres.
She says the sixth grader has been dealing with bullying since last semester.
Jackson called the Riverview Gardens School District to complain and was shocked by what she was told. According to Jackson, a district representative told her that while her 13-year-old daughter could be transferred to another school, her breasts are so large that she will always be teased. The woman then allegedly suggested a solution to the problem: that Gabrielle should undergo a surgery to reduce her cup size.
“It makes me feel like now you are telling me it’s my fault, it’s God’s fault the way he made her. The lady on the phone said they could transfer my daughter and said her boobs were so large she will always get teased. And the only suggestion she had for me is to have my daughter get a breast reduction,” said Jackson.
School Superintendent Clive Coleman told Fox 2 that officials are planning to counsel students to resolve the bullying issue and build self-esteem.
As to the breast reduction comments, Coleman said the district is still investigation the allegations, but he believes there might have been a miscommunication.
Meanwhile, Jackson said that her nine-year-old son, Elijah, also has been subjected to bullying. The boy has a rare heart condition which requires repeated surgery. As a result, kids in his school have been making fun of his scars, which has led the child to make suicidal comments.
The superintended told the mother that they are planning to set up a meeting and resolve the issues for both of the children.
