Guess again "genius".

If parents are the root of "Sociopaths" then why are bullying, gangs, violence and school shootings, always manifested first in the schools?

Tsk, said not to patronize me like that... It almost hurts. What grounds do u have to blame the instructors? A childs instinct to bully is natural. As for it manifesting in schools, that isnt the teachers fault. That is from other students and life at home, and the students personal demons. You cant blame the teachers for not being able to quell a kids ideas. Its not their place. The instructors are there to educate not conform. I graduated from nlhs less than 3 years ago, it want the teachers that made my life miserable out give me ides it was the kids

Because the instructors almost always Cave-in, to the bully, instead of standing up too them. But that would run affront to what indoctrination is in American schools.

If American children are instinctively drawn to "bullying" then it is because they are a product of their social" environment.

Yes a good teacher would not seek to quell a students Ideas, yet most teachers do. The reason is that the teacher feels that he/she is always "right".
The best "teacher" is experience, let the chips fall where they may.

A valid point, I was just trying to say that it isnt always the teachers that are in the wrong

Maybe not, but definitely always "part" of the wrong.
