EL PASO, TX — An El Paso civil rights organization is demanding an investigation into the Socorro Independent School District.
According to the Paso del Norte Civil Rights Project, a 13 year-old student at Jane Hambric School was hospitalized yesterday after being attacked and beaten by another student on campus.
The seventh grader was allegedly knocked unconscious.
The Socorro Independent School District won't confirm the attack happened or even than a student was hurt, but district officials do say they take bullying incidents very seriously.
Pat O'Neill, SISD Associate Superintendent, says parents and students can report bullying anonymously on their website www.sisd.net
