From The Kansas City Star: The Blue Springs (Mo.) School District has settled a lawsuit brought by the parents of a student who committed suicide in 2007 after allegedly being a target of chronic bullying. Brandon Myers, who was 12, hanged himself in his home on Feb. 22, 2007. In the lawsuit, Brandon’s parents, Kimberly and Randy Myers, alleged that their son over several years had been the victim of physical and emotional abuse at the hands of fellow students, and that the district had been negligent in its training and supervision of employees in regard to bullying. In the settlement, the district has agreed to institute an annual bullying awareness day. Also, two district administrators must undergo additional off-site bullying awareness training.
