Re: Inter-district transfers not allowed [Letter, Village News, 2/5/10]

We have had similar issues (failures) in trying to get an inter-district transfer for our daughter. Our daughter attends Potter Junior High School. She is constantly ridiculed, harassed, and most recently, threatened with bodily harm.

Due to the harassment and threats, we have decided we do not want our daughter to attend Fallbrook High School as the same students at PJHS will go on to Fallbrook High. We have thus far been denied by two members of the high school administration. They both feel we should give the high school a chance to “fix the situation.”

It amazes me how they feel it will be all right to subject our daughter to more harassment, threats, and humiliation in order to allow them “an opportunity to fix the situation.” It further amazes me that one of the administrators tells me things will be different because “we are a different district.” The same students go to both districts - how will things change?

It appears Fallbrook High is willing to roll the dice on our daughter being physically abused in order to allow them to “fix the situation.” We are still fighting the transfer but want to tell all other families that do not want to have their children go to Fallbrook High to write to this newspaper and their congressman and tell them we have the right to send our children to the school we deem best and not based on some district line.
