I am sure the parents have been punished far more than equity would allow, but, why do parents make their kids go back to schools where they are being bullied?

I wouldn’t go to work if people were hitting me there.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Society plays mind games with children. They are told that schools are the “real world”. They are told that learning how to deal with bullies is somehow helping them to deal with the “real world”.

Yet....In the real “real world”, adults would win MILLIONS from their employer if subjected to this abuse, and in the real “real world”, adults are free to seek employment elsewhere.

Then....Parents and other adults wonder why teens grow sullen, answer in monosylables, and give them that 20 degree off-centered stare. This is behavior seen in prisoners. And...People wonder why there is a generation gap? Why should teens trust parents and adults who subject them to this institutional abuse?
