Parents of boy in teacher bullying incident may speak publicly for first time



GIG HARBOR, Wash. - The parents of a Pierce County boy at the center of a teacher bullying dispute may publicly speak about the incident for the first time.


Their attorney said the couple may take their case to a Peninsula School Board meeting Thursday.


Gig Harbor teacher John Rosi is accused of bullying one of his students in the classroom.


Rosi was at first suspended and reassigned to another school following the firestorm of criticism about his behavior.  


He's now on paid leave pending the outcome of the Pierce County Sheriff's Department investigation.


Meanwhile, a Facebook page has popped up in support of Rosi.        


The page is called Bring Back Mr. Rosi and has 276 likes.


Several people have commented that Rosi is a great teacher and coach and the media is exaggerating the story.
