My daughter is being bullied, we follow the proper steps, even pressed charges on the bully. The bullying affected my daughters health physically. After numerous tests to rule out anything medical I was told it was from the stress the bully was inflicting on her. My daughter is now in therapy because of all of this. What I don't understand is why bullies are tiptoed around. Why are there programs to help the bullied kids cope with the bully? Why isn't the bully in therapy, or expelled. They say it's zero tolerance for violence in our district. Bullying is a form of violence. Bullies should be expelled. This problem is getting out of hand all over the USA. Bullied boys snap & shoot up things, bullied girls commit suicide. I hate sending my daughter to school I fear for her safety. I'm now in the process of getting the home schooling, paperwork together

This isn't a new problem, it's been happening forever, but it does seem to be a much worse problem these days than ever before.

Does that make it right? Heck no, and I agree that something should be done.

But what?

Lets start at home. Parents need to teach their children how to behave. The parents I see around here today make me sick.

Then at school. Teachers need to pay more attention to what is really going on in their schools, instead of worrying about posting updates to their facebook pages. Teachers needs to be held more accountable. I know this from personal experience.

Here is a lil tidbit you might want to explore, It's called Online Public Schools. This is the route I'll be taking for next year. It's a virtual classroom. The funds your school recieves for your child is re directed to the virtual school. Pennsylvania offers resident students the opportunity to take online public school courses for free. In order to qualify, schools must meet the following qualifications: classes must be available completely online, they must offer services to state residents, and they must be funded by the government. No more bullying issues for my daughter.

The only thing I disagree on about paddling, is if a teacher does it to a student, it's discipline, if a parent does it to their child, it's abuse.

actually there is no law stating that the schools or a parent are unable to paddle children. I didn't realize this til talking to a judge 2 weeks ago (and it was in an education setting, I was not in court for those of you that want to say something about that). It is the schools that have changed this, as far as the law is concerned, school are able to paddle the children. However who can blame them for not in this sue happy world we live in now!

coudy school never did shit about bulling. as long as you have money your kids will get treated great by the teachers but if you DONT have shit and you stand up for yourself your going to get in trouble.. bullies are in every school we will never get rid of them the teacher need to put there foot down and stop these kids from running the schools... and one more thing they DONT fucking care until it happens to one of there kids then they do something about it till then its going to happen..

Hey poster 3:28, who would you blame if there weren't teachers? People are always quick to blame the schools and teachers. Poster 3:10 had a great point. The courts would be tied up with parents suing everyone. Teachers hands are tied. What can they do?

Hello 3:28. I certainly hope that someone with your poor grammatical skills and vulgar vocabulary has absolutely nothing to do with raising children or setting examples for them.

Schools cover up and look the other way (remember the 3 monkeys with their hands over their eyes, ears and mouth) so they look and get bigger grant monies.

If the majority of parents home schooled like mentioned above and the per student funds got diverted to online schools MAYBE they would do something. HOWEVER, they would most likely just jackup our schools taxes to make up the loss in revenue from the government.
