If You Go Carrying Pictures Of Chairman Mao ...

If You Go Carrying Pictures Of Chairman Mao ...

By Jeff Wagner. CREATED Mar 17, 2014

 A 9-year-old boy in North Carolina has taken to bringing his lunch to school in a My Little Pony lunch bag.  As a result, he has become the target of some bullies.

Here's a link to an interview with the boy's parents and some photos of the lunch bag.

In an effort to diffuse the situation, school officials have suggested that the child leave the lunch bag at home.  They say the bag had become a distraction and was a "trigger for bullying".

The boy's parents are outraged and believes that the school should punish her child's tormentors.

Which raises the question of whether these remedies are mutually exclusive?

During the 2 p.m. hour of Monday's radio show, we'll discuss whether the school is enabling bullies by asking the victim to modify his behavior?

Please feel free to share your thoughts in the Comments section - and be sure to check back later to hear a replay of the segment.
