Brazosport ISD parents think school district is lax on bullying, ask for answers

LAKE JACKSON, Texas (KTRK) – Over the past few days, we’ve been telling you about the Brazoswood High School football player who was attacked by a teammate and is currently in the ICU. As authorities investigate the details of the incident, another mother is speaking out about her son’s assault on the Brazoswood 9th grade campus, which happened a month before the soccer player attack.

ABC13 gets a quick video but it’s still hard to watch. The video shows Teletha Broussard’s son, Logan, being assaulted in November. He suffered a concussion, spastic ribcage, and hasn’t been able to sleep or eat much since.

“Where are the teachers? Where are the screens? Where is the security?” Broussard asked.

The video has since circulated widely on Snapchat and speaks to an issue that Broussard says is bigger than people realize. While charges were filed against Logan’s attacker and he was punished, Broussard said she was never told how.

In fact, she believes Brazosport ISD in general is not doing enough to eliminate bullying or a culture of violence.

“Our kids go to school to learn, and feel safe and protected. But you’re not doing it. You’re not doing your part. You’re sloppy,” Broussard continued.

Broussard was not alone in his disappointment. A parking lot was filled with parents who shared their concerns with ABC13.

Victoria and Eric Green’s 7th grade daughter had suffered enough bullying, taunting and shoving her at Lake Jackson Middle School that she punched her. Despite being an honors student, fully attended school, and never in trouble before, she was sent to an alternative school for 35 days and charged with assault.

Victoria Green said: “We don’t tolerate fighting, but at some point you have to defend yourself.

“This girl is walking around. She still bullies people and they don’t do anything,” Eric Green said.

Parents told us they’ve been to school board meetings trying to find answers but can’t seem to get or don’t get their agenda items on the schedule. Things became so controversial that a BISD Parent/Teacher Advocacy group on Facebook was formed.

“Over the past few months, we’ve been learning more about disciplinary issues, multiple attacks, terrorist threats, and we feel there’s been no adequate communication and these issues are not addressed. addressed appropriately,” said founder Mike Walls.

The school district did not respond to people’s concerns, but released the following statement about the attack on Broussard’s son:

“After receiving information about the incident that occurred on November 8, 2021, on the Brazoswood 9th grade campus, our staff immediately took action. Law enforcement stepped in and learned Students have been arrested and expelled from school We take all these matters seriously and students will be punished to the fullest extent of the law.

We understand these situations can cause anxiety for students as well as parents; Please understand that we are limited on what we can share due to privacy and safety concerns. “

The district also said it has a hearing process for each case of bullying or assault, and the best thing to do is to see the principal of their child’s school. To get an item on the agenda at a school board meeting, you need to go to the superintendent’s office.
