Take Your Complaint Higher
If the situation doesn’t improve or the bullying is severe in nature, make sure you go to the teacher’s supervisor or the building administrator. Sometimes teachers will rationalize their behavior, blame the student or refuse to admit any wrongdoing. Other times, bullying is much too severe to risk speaking with a teacher directly. If this is the case, ask to meet with the principal in person. Share your documentation and discuss your concerns. You also could request a classroom transfer at this point. Not all principals will honor such requests, but some do.
