Schools and Bullying

In light of the recent school shooting, I am disgusted with the public school systems.

The majority of bullying goes on inside of and during school hours or on school grounds. Speaking from personal experience of my own the biggest problem I ran into was in the parent(s) are required to play by their district’s rules and follow their “Policies”.

Now what will following the majority of schools “policies” get you? I can tell you first hand, NOTHING.

I’ve had teachers over the years tell me things like ‘your child brought this on themselves’ and that’s my favorite saying. The teacher that said it to me (actually there have been about 6 different teachers that have said this to me and this child is still in school) was shocked when I replied to their complete lack of taking responsibility for dealing with this during class when it happened “are you stupid or just lazy”.

Schools, their staff and administration do not want to be held legally accountable for the actions of children in their daily care but they do expect each parent to be accountable for every minute of every day even if they are at school.

You hear a lot of ‘where were the parents’ but you never hear ‘where was the teacher when this went on during their class?’

Now what blows my mind is the recent shooting and they are looking to blame the parents but not asking why the school administration did nothing and the students said it went on right in front of the administration and it’s staff but nothing was done so it escalated to a shooting? That’s completely irresponsible on the schools part. If they had tried to stop it and communicated with all the parents of both the child being bullied and the children guilty of doing the bullying this probably would not have happened. But doing all that means the school system would have to be responsible for what went on and they don’t want that responsibility.

People, crack down on the bullies and defend the victims and stop blaming the victims!
