If I say yes..someone will accuse me of being bias. If I say no..someone will accuse me of being a bully.

Umm..The the way the school board is conducting "business"..wonder if that would be considered bullying and harrassment?

In my opinion (notice how I said opinion), parents need to take the responsibility and talk to there children about being a bully and being bullied, and I'm sure many do. Unfortunately, in some cases parents who bully create children who bully. I recently spoke to a parent of a child who was being bullied and she said she was told by a teacher that he is not a babysitter. Count on yourself to educate your children about bullying.

Gotta agree 100%. Like helping with studies it's all part of parenting 101.

It takes a caring person to be a great teacher. A teacher who would say to a parent I am not a babysitter when their child is being bullied is part of the problem. A teacher who doesn't care is a crappy teacher.

Unfortunately the ones that care are outnumbered.

I say it starts in the home! If a child has a bully or is being bullied in the home no wonder these kids go to school and pull there crap on other kids! Plus some faculty don't give a damn one way or the other!

I have noticed over the years that instead of thinking about teaching as a vocation it is merely thought of as a job. Not by all, but by most. I did 1 thru 9 in a parochial school then switched to public for foot ball and wrestling. What a culture shock. That's when my parents stepped in and saved me from myself. I needed pushed in my studies or I would just coast and get along with minimum grades. Thank God for good parents.

I went to both public and catholic schools and I found a few teachers in both schools that cared but most were cold,crude,rude and a couple of them said we could careless if you pass or fail cause either way we get paid at the end of the week.

If the ones that care are outnumbered... the problem is in the school.

There are bullys everywhere..not just in the schools. There are also adult bullys that some may deal with in the workplace. You would like to think your children would be safe from the bullys while in school.Is it the the teachers job to keep your child safe while in school? I hope so. The best defense against bullying is to listen to your child and offer them the best possible solution.

The topic is about bullying and harassing at RMS... not about bullies everywhere. If there are a bunch of uncaring teachers at this school, they are a huge part of the problem. Teachers are not paid to be uncaring, with bad morals or be the bully. Students need surrounded be professional teachers that would be able to not only give knowledge but give lessons of ethics too.

I know what the topic is about and I agree with you to a point...However, if a parent chooses to rely solely on the teachers to stop the bullying at RMS then they may be in for a shock! It's just the way it is. Parents need to monitor everything that goes on in their childs' life..at home, at school, or wherever.

It is the responsibility of every adult at the school to monitor and provide a safe learning environment to each and every student. A teacher who doesn't care will lack classroom management skills, being ineffective or incompetent.

It is the responsibility of every adult at the school to monitor and provide a safe learning environment..most definately. Is any parent guaranteed of this..unfortunately not. There is no greater advocate for a childs' safety and well being than their parents. I realize a parent can't be in the school all day but you can consistantly be pro-active about the bullying policy.

Is any teacher guaranteed good parents... unfortunately not. However, good parents could have children who misbehave too. The attitude and behavior of the teacher will affect the students. In the classroom the teacher has the greatest impact (good or bad) on students.

This topic is not about good or bad parents...good or bad teachers, its' about bullying and I still stand by my belief that it is the parents responsibility to arm their children with as much love and support they can give when it comes to bullys. If the parent is a bully themselves then that is an issue that needs to be addressed by another source. If the teacher is a bully then that needs to be addressed by the administration. If a child is bullying another child then the parent needs to intervine..don't expect a teacher to do it, they may..more than likely may not.
