People also voiced their frustration regarding the school’s statement, criticizing it for prioritizing reputation management over the loss of a child’s life. The school’s assertion that the tragedy was an “isolated incident” was met with disapproval, as individuals felt that such a response failed to adequately address the gravity of the situation.

Sickening that the school with its comment that this tragedy was “an isolated incident" appears more interested in reputation management than the life of a child. https://t.co/xYNkWuQN4U
