Classmates at Landmark Middle School say Diego was bullied, also on social media. They say that violence is a problem at school
Delegates were called to the school at about 1.10 pm on September 16 and Diego was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
The incident has led to outrage in the community, especially among parents about the way the school treats bullying among students.
The school administrators said that the two students arrested for the attack were honors students. In honor of the student program, students were not allowed to have behavioral problems such as bullying.
Diego classmates told KTLA that he was bullied earlier, also on social media. Students say that violence is a constant problem at school.
"It's really hard because there are so many fights here, and they don't do anything about it," said student Crystal Rodriguez. & # 39; Security is everywhere at school, but it takes forever to come. & # 39;
A law enforcement officer said there were no red flags why Diego was being bullied and attacked.
The school district has said it hires behavioral specialists and this year will collaborate more with mental health experts and services. Crisis advisors are also available for students and employees.
