Schools should be more proactive in addressing bullying

Ms. Daniels’ letter to the editor (published Dec. 22, titled “A gift like no other: Our daughter has returned”) was both frightening and heart warming. I am so very glad that Julia is once again enjoying her childhood and school.

And I am appalled that she was the victim of vicious bullying for so long. And I am confused as to why schools do not take a more active role in addressing this very serious problem. Julia is fortunate to have such a loving and courageous family.
