When parents send their precious kids off to school, they pray other children will be kind to them. However, if their child does have any issues with bullies, they hope that at the very least, the school will handle the situation properly and protect their child.
So when one Arizona mother of two, Sue N’Goran, found out cruel classmates were bullying her little boy over the color of his skin, she immediately brought it to the school’s attention. “He’s been bullied by these children…saying that he’s brown only because he’s so dirty that he can’t get cleaned,” N’Goran said.
“So he’ll scrub himself, he’ll sit in the bathroom and scrub his skin trying to get the brown off of him. And asking me, ‘Why did you make me brown, if you know I was going to get bullied?’,” N’Goran said in tears. At first, N’Goran was hopeful after speaking at a board meeting at the Tucson Unified School District and being told by administrators that they would not tolerate bullying and would handle the situation.
Recently, however, the third grader ended up in the hospital after the bullies hit him in the head and called him the ’N’ word as they attacked him. And when N’Goran reached out for answers, the principal claimed she had made everything up.
Campus security then called N’Goran to inform her that she and her son had been banned from the school and the entire district’s property for life. Now, the outraged mom is sharing her story to get answers and justice for her son, but the school is still refusing to explain their decision. “We cannot comment on any particular incident due to privacy laws. In general, I can say that campus safety is our highest priority. Any person who threatens students or staff or presents a concern with the rights of others is not allowed on campus via board policy,” the Tucson Unified School District said in a statement.
