It has come to my attention by several parents in Tangipahoa Parish, that their children are being bullied. Tangipahoa Parish School System has a Violence Prevention Program that will ensure the schools are safe for the students. 

Some students are violating that prevention plan by bullying other students. Several months ago about two dozen family members, friends and supporters of 13-year old Jewel M. Sumner Middle School Chris Lang arrived in protest at the Tangipahoa Parish School Central Office. Chris Lang came with his arm wrapped in a cast and bruised on his left shoulder. He said he had been a victim of bullying for years in the school system.

Recently, Winifred Payne a mother of another 13 year old student at Sumner has been complainting about her son been bullied. Mrs. Payne has written letters to Governor Bobby Jindal office, President Obama, and her State Representative Office asking for help. 

Please join host Antoinette Harrell and co-host Dr. Okpara Nosakhere as they welcome their special guest Winifred Payne for a discussion of bullying at Jewel M. Sumner Middle School in Tangipahoa Parish.
