Mother sues school district over bullied son

A mother in Salmon Arm is taking the local school district to small claims court.

Leanne McIvor alleges that the school district failed to properly protect her son from bullying, and as a result she's had to pull her son out of class and home school him instead.

She is suing for loss of wages because, she says, she is unable to work. Daybreak's Adrian Nieoczym has been looking into this story and explains it all to guest host Alya Ramadan.
