GRAAAAAAAAAAAAUUGHH.

This makes me so furious. I searched Google for contact info of the teachers and administrators involved, the family, etc., in search of ways to help do something about this. There are ways of contacting a lot of different people involved in this. Among other things, the school's address is: Jacksonville Junior High School, 1320 School Drive, Jacksonville, AR 72076. I suggest writing.

The only good thing in this case is that the boy's mother is suing the school and therefore is obviously on his side. Which is a major relief, because if she were against him he could easily be dead.
