Second Grader’s No-Suicide Pact

An 8 year-old-boy in Texas tried to commit suicide after his teacher did nothing about the bad bullying he faced every day. The school’s response: have him sign a ‘no suicide’ agreement. Apparently this is standard procedure in this school district. Any student who tries to harm him/herself has to sign it. But this kid is in second-grade…and dyslexic.

We want to know – would you ask your child to sign a no-suicide pact?

Post your comments here. Kyra will read some of them on the air in the 10am ET hour of Newsroom.
