N.J. Governor Faults School Officials in Bullying Case

Governor Deval Patrick said that South Hadley school officials should be “held accountable” for their handling of the bullying that preceded Phoebe Prince’s suicide, describing reports that Prince had personally turned to administrators for help as “outrageous.”

“I’m telling you, this is outrageous, what you and I and others are reading and hearing about this,” Patrick said in a radio interview on WTKK-FM. “The more we hear, the worse it sounds.”

Patrick discussed the Prince case on his monthly appearance on the “Ask the Governor” segment of the Jim and Margery Show. The Prince case has captured international attention and sparked intense criticism of school officials for not doing more to protect the 15-year-old freshman, who committed suicide Jan. 14.
