Altoona policies need accountability

The more I read about the Altoona Area School District investigating its policies on bullying, the more anger it incites in me.

Altoona’s policies mean nothing unless it gets to the root of the problem.

Investigate the bullies themselves and make them responsible and accountable as well as their parents, and discipline should be applied immediately.

Yes, I feel that the Altoona Area School District as well as other school districts are just sweeping the bullying issue under the rug.

My heartfelt sympathies go out to the family who lost their child to suicide, allegedly due to bullying. While they investigate their policies on bullying, how about spending some time and energy tracking down these bullies whom I feel are responsible for this child’s death?

Please don’t let any more young lives be lost due to bullying.
