New Jersey high school principal installs laundry room to fight student bullying

By ABC 11

A high school principal in New Jersey is going above and beyond to make sure his students don’t skip school out of fear of being bullied.

WABC-TV reports, West Side High School Principal Akbar Cook said some students were being bullied because of their dirty clothes — which resulted in chronic absenteeism where they would miss three to five days a month.

One time a student didn’t want her bags checked to enter the school because she was embarrassed to be carrying dirty clothes while she was homeless.
