to those that work in the school system. why is bullying so ignored?
granted, I know that sometimes it's a child that has been molested or things like that, so sometimes there's limits as to what you can do to a child like that, but I see it time and time again.
a child is assulting another student a child is bullying, and it seems that everyone just turns their back and ignores it. then when the victim finally fights back, then they are all over it, wanted to punish the child that finally fought back.
it was the case over 30 years ago when I was in school, and it's the case now. Don't tell me it's because they could prove it when the victim fought back, but couldn't before, because in my case things happened right in front of teachers aids. at best they just said they didn't see anything, or claimed it wasn't their job to deal with it. then when the bully ended up in the office with a bloody nose, then it was a entirely different story.
there's got to be a reason for all this, could someone who works at a school please shed some light as to why this continues to go on?
