VIERA, Fla. (AP) --

The teacher along Florida's Space Coast who was threatened last year by students on Facebook has resigned.

Former English teacher Kathy Bowen said she chose to retire
Tuesday from Viera High School. She says she has been bullied by
school administrators who she claims are still upset that she went
public about the Facebook threats, which made headlines nationwide
in March.

Brevard County School district officials say they have no
evidence that Bowen filed any formal complaints alleging she had
been mistreated.

The Brevard County Sheriff's Office investigated and decided not
to pursue criminal charges against any of the teens involved with
the Facebook threats.

    You are so RIGHT the Sheriff's and the Adminstrators should also have to resign. If it were them being threatened the students would be punished. You need to look at the students(their parents have money and the old saying goes money talks and B---S--- walks. It is the same in Thomas Co. Adminstrators and Superintendents talks and Board Member don't do anything but walk you know what I mean. They(theBOARD) needs to get a backbone PERIOD

    It's sad to know that the local sheriffs dept won't press charges. So, children, go ahead and do the crime, cause the law will allow it to continue.

    We wonder why our school systems are so bad. I don't blame the teacher for leaving, when the adminstration won't back a teacher your school system has problems.
