have no idea where this article is coming from or where it's going.
Start with a premise. elaboration, and make a concluding comment. Just bad rhetoric all around.
The bully and victim are interviewed; the principal makes a determnation after hearing all sides, informs the parents beforehand and takes action, or nonaction-write-up, warning, suspension, police matter. Theimportant aspect is that the school does not ignor the problem anymore.Easy.

I think the article is saying that we are not tolerating bullying but we don't have a plan about what to do with the bully. These are kids and most of the time it is not going to be a criminal offense. Does this mean they get a suspension and go on their way?
I think the article is saying we need a way to "help" the bully not bully anymore. Find out what's going on with the bully to make him/her behave that way and do something constructive to teach them how to behave differently.

It's a temptation for school districts to kick the can down the road in bullying cases. It's hard work.
Comparisons abound but the root causes of the suicide of Phoebe Prince differ markedly from the suicide of Hunter Perkins.
Hunter had guns in his home. His deceased mother's gun was the weapon he used to kill himself. His father blames the Groton School but in fact it was the guns in Hunter's home that killed the boy.
America is a violent society. Too many children despair of their future and give up all hope. Every adult needs to take a look in the mirror and examine their own lives so that they may better administer to the needs of children.
