The latter :P and not so much against kids fighting as against teachers brushing off serious bullying as "kids being kids"
0 ups, 4y,
I've always thought that, schools adopting a "zero tolerance" policy on fighting in school, has caused an increase in "bullying". I guess I feel like, if you take away a persons ability to defend themselves, their only alternitive is to accept the abuse from others, or hope that some authority figure will step in on their behalf. But with the adult to child ratio in school settings being so one sided, its foolish to think that the school staff would be able to recognize and respond to every incident. I feel many parents over react when their child is involved in a fight at school. As a parent myself, I would much rather my kid come home with a black eye, than be shot by some kid who was denied the opportunity to defend himself and out of a feeling of helplessness decided the only other option was to shoot up the whole school. But that's just me... Either way it's sad the kids can't learn without dealing with such bullshit. :-(

I don't think the zero tolerance policy really has much to do with it. Bullying has always been around. What bothers me is when teachers and administrators willfully turn a blind eye to verbal and physical harassment and bullying because they don't want to deal with the problem. That's when it gets so bad that some kids feel suicide is the only solution.

WHEN A FIGHT HAPPENS BETWEEN TWO GROWN MEN IN A BAR, IT'S FELONY ASSAULT. WHEN IT HAPPENS TO A CHILD AT SCHOOL, IT'S "KIDS BEING KIDS" BUT T
