Yes! Consider this a small victory over bullying!

Earlier this week, we heard about Grayson Bruce, the nine-year-old boy who was bullied at his his North Carolina school because of his My Little Pony Rainbow Dash backpack.

The school’s horrible solution was to have Grayson leave his backpack at home, so the bullying would stop.

Obviously, that means the bullies win & it caused quite the backlash, so the school is exploring different options — which ALL allow Grayson to return to class with his favorite pack on his back!

The Buncombe School District posted this statement to their Facebook:

“We have appreciated the opportunity to meet with the Bruce family and discuss the issues. We sincerely regret that the issue of being told to leave the bookbag at home was perceived as blaming Grayson. While that was not the intent, the perception became reality. We support Grayson bringing the bookbag to school.

We discussed a number of options to consider in moving forward for Grayson. All of the options discussed included a safety transition plan and an allowance for Grayson to bring the bookbag to school.

Every situation with young children is a teachable moment and we will use this example in our efforts to address a wider issue of bullying. The Bruce family has committed to working with us to improve and enhance our anti-bullying programs.

We ask for everyone’s patience and understanding as we continue to work collaboratively with the family toward a resolution that is best for Grayson and his classmates at Candler Elementary School.”

Um, we have an idea: let innocent Grayson carry whatever backpack he wants to and TEACH all of the bullies how to treat others properly!

Why wouldn't that be your FIRST option??

A petition on Change.org has exceeded 10,000 signatures, so maybe that will help this kid get back in school too, considering he hasn't been back since March 10th.

That brings up another question: How is it right that Grayson is missing out on his education because OTHER kids can’t control themselves?!

We’re glad that the My Little Pony gear is welcome back in the corridors, but get it together, Buncombe School District. The solution is simple.
