Bullied Student with Disabilities

The numbers of student bullies and those being bullied are staggering. An astonishing 30% of high school students are bullies or are victims of bullying. The numbers of bullied victims go up when someone has a disability. Fortunately, there are people with great hearts that show kindness to bullied victims. A great example of this is with the football team of Queen Creek High School. A student with special needs was being bullied. High school bullies were throwing trash at her, calling her names, and pushing her in the halls. Until, the high school football team stepped in and began eating with her at lunch, walking her to her classes, and sitting with her. It is truly amazing how much of a difference you can make for someone with a disability.
