When bullying victims fight back, they get in trouble. At least at our school.
I know all fighting is wrong, but my daughter *finally* fought back for once and she got a referral for "sexual misconduct" because she kicked the boy in the groin after he flung her around and tried to slam her to the ground.
She's been sexually harassed on a regular basis for months by numerous students (dyke, cunt, etc), and nobody got written up for sexual misconduct. She's been hit, scratched, punched, etc. Nobody was written up. They all just "got a talking to". But the FIRST time she fights back, she gets a referral to go on her permanent record.
I am so exhausted from dealing with this. I can't imagine how she feels.
I am looking into other schools next week.
I wrote the full story on my blog but am too tired to type it. :(
