It has a problem with discipline and accountability, bullying is the same as it always was. Kids can be mean, they have to learn that there are consequences for bad behavior and certain actions will not be tolerated, regardless of your socio-economic status or your surroundings at home.
The adults in the district, as a whole, are a group of enablers. The lesson that needs to be taught is that you can be a decent human being and a successful student IN SPITE of where you come from. There aren't special rules just for you BECAUSE of it.

They really have bullying problems and its such a shame they have such an extended anti-bullying policy if they are not going to put it in practice, say that if you are been bullied tell it to the teacher or to the principal but is the same thing if the kids tell them they dont even notify the bullies mother so how is he going to get discipline, and in the bus is the same the older kids are always bothering the little ones hitting them or calling them names and they dont do nothing.

I believe the Anit-Bullying week is a national event in schools. I believe school have the choice to participate or not.

Yes, it was anti-bullying week and I've been informed of these happenings at a couple of the elementary schools: a fifth grade boy physically injuring a fifth grade girl, cyber bullying between fifth grade students, and a fourth grader verbally threatening weapon-induced harm to another fourth grader. Where the heck are the parents of these kids? We shouldn't have to rely on the schools to teach our children how to behave or to know right from wrong. Parents need to parent and let's let the teachers focus on teaching.
