10-year-old girl hangs herself after being bullied in school over her race and for being autistic



A 10-year-old girl, Isabella Faith Tichenor has hanged herself after being bullied in school over her race and being autistic.



While her mother, Brittany said she was picked on by other children as she had autism and dyslexia, her grandad Gregory stated that racism was also involved.



Brittany revealed that the abuse was reported to the school in North Salt Lake, Utah, but nothing was done to protect her daughter. She said;




“As any parent would, we reported this abuse to her teachers, the school administration, and the district administration, she told a press conference.

“Nothing, nothing was done to protect Izzy. Children did not have their behaviour corrected so the torment of this child continued day after day.

“You really wouldn’t have known she was going through that.

“So that was the hardest part. She must have really internalised this.”



The schoolgirl’s grandmother Paula Harris said that her family will now be her “voice” to tackle the problem of bullying.



Harris said;




“We are going to be Izzy’s voice, we are going to ring the bell as loud as we can because we are going to stop this bullying. That little girl had spark, that little girl had hopes and dreams.”







The Tichenor family were joined at the press conference by Foxboro Elementary School PTA representatives who also wanted the problem of bullying addressed.
