Mother of Girl, 10, Who Died After Fight: ‘School System Failed Me’

A grieving South Carolina mother whose 10-year-old daughter died after a school fight is seeking answers — following several previous complaints — as to why school officials were not more proactive in addressing the situation.

Ashley Wright, whose daughter Raniya died two days after suffering injuries in a fight with a classmate, said she’d repeatedly complained to the school about her child being bullied by the classmate.

Raniya, a fifth-grader at Forest Hills Elementary School in Walterboro, was unconscious on March 25 when paramedics found her inside the school nurse’s offices and transported her to a local hospital. Her condition was so severe that she was airlifted to another hospital nearly 50 miles away in Charleston, where she died.

“I’m very upset with the school system, starting out, only because of the fact that I’ve been complaining about the person that she fought numerous times to them,” Wright told ABC’s “Good Morning America” in an interview that aired Monday. “That’s what really breaks me down and makes me question to myself why nothing was never done up until now with this happening.

“I’m thinking they got it handled, and they failed me,” she said.
