This is a question LOL Bigots

Freddie Woo says: "A bloke who lived next door to my mum told me on the day Diana died that it was 'God's punishment for sleeping with an Arab'". Tell us stories of bigots, racists, sexists, homophobes and loud-mouths so that we may point and laugh

Or maybe it's because the schools would wind up in an awful lot more trouble if they responded to accusations of racism
with a resounding "meh!"? Probably difficult to strike the right balance when faced with one pupil's word against another, so it's not too hard to see why they'd chose to err on the side of caution. Doesn't make it right, mind.

True say!
You are right - it was more that the school had done just that - believed one boys version of events over the others, thus getting it spectacularly wrong in the process. An own goal from them there - they probably should have been a lot more tactful than they were. I was more annoyed that the lesson all this taught my son, was that people have the right to give him stick and lie about him but that he shouldn't bother standing up for himself as he won't be believed anyway! His confidence was quite knocked there, so it took some undoing on our part. But absolutely, the school(s) should always investigate! Thankfully, the S.E.N. teacher has buggered off and retired now, the old HAG!!! :-D

Rereading your story and spotting the "couple of years ago",
it is quite shocking to find a school still struggling to handle such an incident. I doubt that the SENCo will be missed.
I hope your son recovered his confidence (I wonder if Darryl learnt anything from the experience?).
