TAIPEI -- The Taipei City Department of Education said Monday it will establish a team to investigate an alleged bullying case that resulted in a mother posting an ad in a major newspaper to call out her daughter's bully.
The team will disclose the results of its preliminary investigation within a week, according to the department.
A Taiwanese mother on Sunday placed a half-page ad on the front page of the Chinese-language Liberty Times, naming her teenage daughter's bully and accusing the Taipei Municipal Dunhua Junior High School of failing to intervene in the alleged abuses.
The mother said her daughter's classmate verbally abused her daughter repeatedly and suggested that the school might be trying to sweep the issue under the rug because the bully is the son of a teacher at the school.
