Bullying is a problem that affects millions of students of all races and classes. 1 out of 4 kids is bullied and, depending on age, the percentage of online bullying has risen to about 43%. Some kids are so tormented that they have committed suicide. School bullying has probably been around since about the 17th or 18th century. It is something that has evolved along with the mind and brain. Bullying started with kids picking on each others or parents believing that they were teaching their kids “discipline” by beating them. Bullying also resulted from people stereotyping others, such as by race or gender.Now, kids and teenagers all around the world are using technology as a way to bully people online. Whether through mean text messages, rumors sent by email or posted on social networking sites, embarrassing pictures, videos, websites, or fake profiles, bullies spread information that can be very damaging to victims. In addition, victims are likely to be bullied in person as well.
Victims are more likely to start using alcohol, skip school, and start receiving bad qualifications. They tend to stop doing what they normally did, what made them happy. Their mood goes a different direction and are many are known to experience severe depression. They start distancing themselves away from everyone and start having problems at home, such as aggressive behavior or just spending too much time by themselves.

I created this system because I realized some of my classmates are embarrassed to ask people they don’t know for help; I know that I’m one of them! So, I made this online service where students could get help in a comfortable and organized way.
I think this system is important because the students at Logan High have great potential, and who doesn’t need a little help from time to time?
We’ve impacted our student body in great ways – at the very least, more than a few GPAs were saved last year. Our tutors have had wonderful experiences, and their service helped many of them go on to Harvard, Dartmouth, Stanford, Harvey-Mudd, and a lot of other really impressive schools. If you’re interested in helping out, we would love to have you as a tutor! Just head to our webpage and follow the instructions at the bottom. We’re planning on trying to accept anybody who applies, so fill out that form.
The system will be starting soon after Homecoming. Come check us out!
