So sad for the children.

It was just reported that the limp wristed, cold hearted Teachers and Administrators KNEW about the scope of the hazing and bullying of this 15 year old girl and were such COWARDS or SADISTS that they LET IT HAPPEN.

I am sick and tired of hearing that bullying is a part of growing up. Bullying is done by people who lack empathy, and who like preying on vulnerable people. Why do we expect kids to just accept that it exists when many adults have options to challenge it--like redress either in the workplace or in courts?
