Flushing community urges school district to recognize bullying is an issue, board members hope to learn from past mistakes Published: Wednesday, January 18, 2012, 9:37 AM Updated: Wednesday, January 18, 2012, 9:45 AM By Sarah Schuch | The Flint Journal FLUSHING, Michigan — A former Flushing student asked those at the Flushing School Board to raise their hands if they had ever been bullied, were a bully or watched someone be bullied. Throughout the three questions many of the 50 plus people, including board members, put their hands up. “I went to Flushing from preschool to eighth grade. I was bullied, I was part of the bullying and I watched bullying happen,” said 15-year-old Mitchell Broughton, who now attends Powers Catholic High School. “Hopefully we will get the change we’re looking for to stop bullying. ... I just wanted to come (to the meeting) because I was bullied in middle school. I just wanted to get the word out. It’s alright for it be known. We just need to fix it.” With the recent deaths of two Flushing High School students, it’s been an emotional month for the community and emotions ran high at Tuesday’s School Board meeting. Jarrod Nickell, 18, was found dead in a wooded area behind him home Jan. 11 after committing suicide. His parents and friends believe bullying at school was one fact that caused him to take his own life.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
