Along with students who become the subject of bullying at school, there remains a multitude of bullied students who may not realize bullying is occurring. Potentially, students may become the subject of bullying by a teacher, but choose not to report anything because they feel as though no one would side with them, which may remain. “There was a girl I had a class with. She said the teacher constantly got on her. His job is to correct students, so thats why I think no one said anything about it, but he directed most of his comments only to her. She later told me that she felt he was targeting her but she didnt say anything to other teachers because she felt like they wouldnt believe her and also it would cause more problems,” freshman Coleman Powers said.

My mom is a health scientist at the US Department of Health and Human Services also in Atlanta. They raised me very well and explained the way of the world to me when I was very young. Now, I am a magnet student at North Cobb taking some AP classes as well. I would definitely say my parents are the reason why I am currently successful in school today,” Freshman Marissa Grier said.
