Children attending public schools want to have fun, see their friends, learn, and mature in safety.

Their parents want the same things… a safe, clean, healthy, enjoyable and learning environment and experience.

Bullies, both male and female ruin all of that. Why do they bully? They bully because of what happens to them when they do it. If they are rewarded by that act, even if only psychologically, they will repeat it. If they suffer negative consequences of a greater magnitude than the reward, and they suffer those consequences every time they bully, only the sociopath will continue. If it continues, they must be sent away from the non-bullies, immediately and for a very long period.
Without such a policy, the wrong people are being punished, the wrong people rewarded. Principals and school boards should be legally culpable

A culture of criminals

Americans commit over 11,400,000 crimes a year: murder, rape, robbery, assault, burglary, larceny, auto-theft.

1,400,000 are violent. That doesn’t count those that occur in our public schools.

Terrorism is fear of violent harm at home, in our communities and in our schools. We do not have to travel to other nations to find terrorists, they live among us and our school children.

A nation and culture of crime, costing us over $1 trillion per year and immense human suffering.

It is horrid evidence of our lack of concern for others and our emphasis on self- gratification, at any cost, even at the cost of human suffering. It is a cultural thing.

That is ugly. It has to change.
