Teen's Bullying by Coach and Rival's Mother at Elite Private School Nearly Turns Fatal - Page 4
Well, in light of the situation, there are a few ways to interpret the events. An unfortunate coincidence, she lost the opportunity to be recruited to the school because she was "behind the eight ball" in only reminding the counselor a few times to send the files. Does the identity of her counselor have any bearing on Connie's unfortunate circumstances? Hard to say. Her counselor is the same man who spoke to the police. In fact he is the only man who spoke to the police, Her counselor is the Director of College Counseling. Strange that a Director of College Counseling needs to be reminded 8-10 times to send transcripts to a school that another student is recruiting to. Strange that the same counselor was the only one the police spoke to and after their discussion no one spoke to the police again. Strange that the case was closed. Seems like someone was tampering with the Director of College Counseling as well.
What can Hopkins School do? It is just a victim of weird circumstances that surely cannot fall anywhere near it to taint the elite school's marvelous record (one of the best college prep schools in America). If a student lodges a complaint against a faculty member and a parent, and her counselor needed to be reminded infinite times that her transcripts should be sent in by the deadline, what is that to the school's sterling reputation? Hopkins School did send some letters to the coach whose bullying history is known, but the coach has received recognition for his efforts with his students which outshines any negative complaints.
And as for the tampering with Connie's car? An indisputable fact that is on record, like the official complaint that was lodged by Connie and her parents. Two pieces of evidence. But what is the need for showing a chain of evidence for a potential act of criminality/attempted murder when there has and will be be no investigation? No investigation, no crime. No crime, the school is one big happy family again with no stain on its reputation. Everything can go back to normal and there can be peace and quiet, and life can resume in comfort and privilege. Except, of course, for the life of one individual. Her life will never be the same again. Her dreams and life have been tampered with.Continued on the next page
