Viewpoint: School Bullying

Posted: Updated:
The suspension of the Westover High basketball coach and the punishment of several players were necessary steps in sending an important message: bullying won't be tolerated.

The disciplinary actions came after a Westover ball player proved he was bullied and harassed by other players during a basketball camp.

One player was kicked off the team and six others will have to sit out several games for their conduct.

We commend principal William Chun for taking swift action to make sure our students and student athletes are protected from this type of behavior.
