Please note that Buckfire & Buckfire P.C. is not accepting cases for student bullying. Recent case law in Michigan has made it extremely difficult to win this type of lawsuit against a school system or school employees. The content below is for informational purposes only. We sincerely regret that we cannot pursue this type of case for you or your child.
On Friday, April 27th, 2012 the world will join together in the movement against student bullying, for International STAND UP to Bullying Day. International STAND UP to bullying day is a special event in which people across the world who have signed a special “pledge shirt” join together in wearing them to accomplish three things: (1) Send a loud, non-confrontation message of resistance to bullies, (2) Identify themselves to victims as a source of support willing to help, (3) Draw attention to the effects of bullying, and stimulate passive bystanders into action.
The stand is taken globally, with pledge shirts and services being made available to schools and workplaces in 25 different countries, United States included. To date, more than 2,600 schools, workplaces and organizations representing more than a million people have taken the STAND.
In honor of International STAND UP to bullying day, our Michigan personal injury lawyers of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. would like to share an infographic that we created to display the facts and statistics about student bullying. The idea for the infographic arose from the many calls our Michigan personal injury lawyers receive every week from concerned parents about their children who are being bullied in Michigan school.
“Student Bullying in the United States Statistics and Facts” is a visual representation that quickly and clearly identifies facts and statistics of how serious and prevalent student bullying in our United States school systems. Some of the visuals on the infographic include two maps of the United States, one classifying which states are the worst to live in for bullying K-12, and one classifying which states enforce bullying laws, as well as other helpful visual aids.
