(ZACHARY TODAY) — About two dozen family members, friends and supporters of 13-year old Jewel M. Sumner Middle School student Chris Lang arrived in protest at the Tangipahoa Parish Schools Central Office Monday morning.

Chris Lang came with his arm wrapped in a cast and bruises on his left shoulder. He said he has been a victim of bullying for years in the school system. Last week, the bullying turned worse when Lang’s arm was broken in two places.

The group of about two dozen chanted “enough is enough already,” and it’s time for the board to put an end to the violence in local public schools.

Chris Lang said a classmate, who had threatened him before and throughout the PE hour, slammed him with his elbow, knocking him to the floor.
