I read your article "Second chances" (Sept. 24, Page A-1) about the trials and tribulations of Mariah Gullatt. When I finished, I was quite puzzled.
Maybe she was only an example and not the subject of the article, but no one explained why or how she could be physically and verbally attacked for months, on campus and in the school environment, without someone taking any disciplinary action toward anyone other than the victim.
As a victim without any resolution of her situation, she may have been well justified to act out in order to call attention to her plight. Unfortunately, it appears that the simplest solution was to discipline the victim. Is this how it really happened, or was there more to this story?
