School tells mother of 13-year-old student to get breast reduction to stop bullying.
Tammie Jackson says the school her daughter, Gabrielle, goes to told her that the only suggestion they had for her was to get a breast reduction.
Gabrielle, a grade 6 student in Central Middle School in Moline Acres had been dealing with bullying since last semester. Jackson called the school district to complain and could not believe the school’s recommendation.
Jackson says she feels as if it’s her fault and God’s fault that her daughter was the way she is.
She claims that the lady on the phone told her they could transfer Gabrielle, but she would still get teased because of her big breasts. The woman then offered advise to get a breast reduction for Gabrielle.
District superintendent, Clive Coleman, said they are investigating bullying in the school. He also believes that it may have been a misunderstanding in communication.
