YAKIMA, WA - It is an issue in schools everywhere, bullying. Nikki Meyer claims that her daughter is a victim of bullying and said it has gotten progressively worse. She said that she has brought these claims to Wilson Middle School, the school her daughter attends, but said they are not taking it seriously. 

"She has been told that they are going to knock the white out of her, to go F yourself, go F your mother and go F your father," said Meyer. 

Meyer said that her daughter has been struggling with bullying the entire school year and as a result her grades are suffering. She claims that at one point it even got physical and her daughter was pushed against a wall buy a larger male student. In another instance she said that her daughter was being bullied in class and when she brought it to the attention of the teacher he tried to give her detention for disrupting class.   

Meyer said that she has brought these bullying claims to the school, but said that they have not done much to remedy them. 

"She has been called names, told racial slurs and has been thrown into a wall and the school is like, oh, we will deal with it, oh, its just teenage drama," said Meyer. "You just feel like it is all one-sided and nothing ever gets done." 

spokesperson for the school district Kirsten Fitterer expressed that their are various ways parents can report bullying to the school district. One of the best ways is filling out a harassment, intimidation and bullying form online, which goes straight to the district and allows them to research the case. 

"If a parent does not feel like they are being heard or that their child is not being heard we really encourage them to either to contact Dr. Nancy McHenry at the district office who is responsible for that, go online and fill out the form because then, we would have all the information," said Fitterer. 

Fitterer adds that any member of the community who sees any instance of bullying at a Yakima school can fill out one of the these forms. She also said that all Yakima School District administrators undergo mandatory bullying training.
