WAUKEGAN, Ill. (STMW) The seventh-grade student knew her friends werent joking about her hair being on fire when they slapped her on the head as she began to smell smoke, said Park City 14-year-old Tatyana Butler.
Waukegan police are investigating the incident at Thomas Jefferson Middle School, the Lake County News-Sun is reporting. Police Cmdr. Gabe Guzman said the incident occurred Tuesday and the two offenders, a 13-year-old and 14-year-old, were disciplined by the school.
Butler recalls walking down the hallway Tuesday afternoon with three friends when two eighth-grade girls that had been bothering her all year started to call her names as she passed them.
I saw them with the lighter. Then they came behind me and they were flicking the lighter, she said. So they go past me and start talking stuff.

There's your problem. An overpaid, incompetent [$105,404] administrator
Illinois? Must be Amish.
I hope heads will roll. This is an outrage.
Not knowing what the composite of this district is, I’m sure there is something racial just under the scratched surface...and it’s the Amish every time.
It is not a stretch to prosecute this as attempted murder.
I am getting more old and crotchety second by second!

What is it with people these days going out of their way to avoid placing blame squarely on the people to whom it belongs instead of trying to put so much distance between cause and effect?
It's pretty easy to find out who she is: Ms. Nicole Fishman, Principal It's most curious that *her* name was omitted in any of these news stories.
I hope the girl's parents are able to see this to a satisfactory conclusion. Fishman is an embarrassment to Waukegan schools, teaching and the community.
( I am shouting)
THERE ARE SCHOOLS SOOOOOOOOO HORRIFIC IT WOULD BE BETTER IF THE CHILD **NEVER*** ATTENDED SCHOOL!!!!!!
Illiteracy and innumeracy can be fixed. Dead or permanently scared or crippled can’t!
I predict no one will stand up to Fishman’s unprofessional response.
I actually wrote an excoriating email to Fishman was was interested in her response...sounded like she has already lawyered up.
It must be white girl- black perps. If it were the opposite it would national news for **MONTHS**!
Also.....I bet the parent of this child **knew** of the danger that her daughter was in and failed to rescue her. In this regard her parent(s) are to blame, as well.
Ironic that the student set on fire is an honor student and had been given the go-ahead to skip a grade.
No. See some of the links.
Hm?.....This is a suburban family. I bet they moved so their daughter could attend a “good” K-12 godless and socialist-entitlement school!
“disciplined at school”??
How about Juvie for 4 years or so?
ABolish public schools!
Administration has the *tools* to expel.
They are not willing to do all the paperwork to enforce the rules and set a tone. Shoot ..........Fishman is only making $105K/year.
Meh. I hope she goes to h3ll in the handbasket she crafted.
However it anyone in that school draws a picture of a gun on a piece of paper, they will be arrested and suspended from school.
Or an assault pencil.

I think I'm going blind.
The perps were 8th grade girls.
From my experience, I’d rather have 40 8th grade boys in a class who are *problems*...than 2 8th grade girls who are problems. The boys will fugetaboutit after a bit....the girls will take it to their graves...never let up/drop it.
