Teachers at a junior high school here discussed the possibility of a 13-year-old boy being bullied by his schoolmates shortly before the second-year student leapt to his death on Oct. 11, 2011, sources close to the municipal board of education told the Mainichi Shimbun.
The teachers, including the one in charge of the boy's class, talked about the possibility of the student being bullied after other students told some of the teachers that the boy had been bullied, the sources said. Teachers were informed of the bullying at least twice by students before the boy committed suicide.
