The parents of a 12-year-old girl who took her own life are suing the school district in New Jersey, saying it failed to prevent bullying.
Dianne and Seth Grossman say the school ignored repeated complaints that their daughter was being targeted.
It's been nearly a year after Mallory's death on 14 June 2017, the lawsuit accuses Copeland Middle School of failing to take significant action to prevent bullying.
It alleges that the school's response was to force Mallory to hug one of her alleged bullies, in lieu of disciplinary action, and accuses the school district of discouraging her parents from making a formal complaint.
What is your biggest fear about sending your kids to schools today? Do you think school districts do enough to prevent these kinds of tragedies? Can they be held responsible for the actions of others?
