FAYETTE - Ken is a misfit at school who keeps to himself and does not appear to have many friends. He is bullied by many of his classmates and he never participates in group activities or sports. Ken’s grades are slipping, and he often skips class or does not attend school at all for a few days.
One day, Ken tells his friend Barbara that he is “sick and tired of school.” He says that he has something planned that will make people wish they had been nicer to him. Ken tells Barbara that she shouldn’t go to school on Friday, because “something bad is going to happen at school that day.”
