Gov. Cox meets with superintendents on bullying and racism after a child suicide
More than a month after the suicide death of a Davis County student, Izzy Tichenor, Gov. Cox says he has taken the conversation about racism and bullying in schools to the superintendents.
He says the conversation with Utah’s superintendents was “candid” and raw.” He says follow-up meetings will be happening so they can further make sure students are safe and comfortable in schools.
Cox says bullying happens in every school and it will continue to happen, but “the question is how we deal with these things,” and that’s what he says they are working on. Cox says the school superintendents shared ideas about what’s working in their districts and he plans to follow up to ensure some of those ideas are implemented.
