Posted: Updated:

CLEVELAND, BRADLEY COUNTY (WRCB) -- Tonya Johnson recorded a closed-door meeting Monday morning, as she met with Cleveland City school officials.

Her 14-year-old son has been at the center of a nasty bullying issue she says just won't go away.

"They said it was their responsibility if he is picked on," she says. "But it keeps happening, so what am I supposed to do? I don't know, I just don't know."

At wit's end, she had to sign an agreement saying she would try to help her son cool his temper in order for him to get back into school.

During the meeting a teacher says she tried to stop the last incident with Johnson's son. 

Johnson says the school is taking steps to resolve the situation.

Her son has also been kicked off the bus and now she trying to figure out how to get him to school. She says the mother of the child accused of bullying, has even thrown rocks through her home.

During the meeting, the school principal says he understands her son is in a tough position.

Johnson asks, "Am I supposed to let my son get beat up and not let him defend himself?"

One teacher suggested adult supervision for Johnson's son, but Johnson says that can't happen.

Following Monday morning's meeting, her son was allowed back in school.

Cleveland Middle School officials held an anti-bullying assembly for the entire student body last month.
