School districts beware: doing nothing to protect students from being bullied is going to cost you. Recently, Aberdeen School District agreed to pay $135,000 to settle a lawsuit brought by a former student who was badly bullied. The victim was forced to endure racial slurs and physical assaults. The school district knew that the student was being bullied, but did nothing.

Hopefully, school districts will learn from this settlement and institute policies to protect students from bullies.
