One thing I discovered is that bullies are usually coddled by the school. The more trouble you cause, the more likely you will see the school look the other way. Violent minorities are particularly coddled because suspending them hurts your stats. The more of them involved in an incident, the less likely they will be punished.
The fewer minorities that get punished, the better the principal looks in the eyes of the school system. The only major exception is gay kids. They get a certain amount of protection by the system.
Very good point!
Also....I think bullies in school perform the same “controller” function as bullies in prison, and for the same reason are deliberately overlooked by the teachers and principals. Bullies guarantee a cowed, timid, and easily manipulated population of prisoners ( students) who are constantly striving to conform and not attract attention.
Again: If we treat our nation’s children like socialist and godless prisoners in our nation’s godless and socialist schools, we risk having a population of future citizens who are comfortable being prisoners of the government.
As my husband pointed out, the posters here are remembering their own childhood prison (oops! “school” ) days. Then there was usually only one bully.
Today, there are GANGS of bullies who have been taught to hate the entire white race.
We should remember that DEAD ( or permanently crippled and scarred) can’t be fixed. Illiteracy and innumeracy can be. And...There are schools in this nation that are, indeed, so bad that it would be better for the child to never attend.
