Can I sue the public school if my son is being bullied?

Question Details: My son was in a fight with a student in the beginning of the school year. Last Thursday, the young man that my son fought, jumped on my son with 2 of his friends. They held him down with another student and the other student punched him in the face and stomach and stuck something in my son's ear which drew blood. They are part of a gang that my son refused to join. His school has been aware of my son's bullying issue but has done nothing about it.
