not sure if bullying applies, but my son came across 2 boys in middle school who were problematic. They got detention a few times and finally an ultimatum that they would get kicked out of the school which they ultimately did.

The problem was they came to our charter school because they were kicked out of their old school and I imagine they would eventually drop out and become criminals.

The problems went away once he transferred to a higher performing school where kids get kicked out if they don't stay above a C average and everybody must apply to a college.

So you're saying, if you're a small kid that get's pushed around by bigger classmates, he/she should just "tough it out"? I don't think so...

The problem is that these days, everything is labeled as bullying. The scenario you just named is probably what most older people consider bullying, but in today's age, it's anything you can think of that affected a child in a negative way. Kids have to deal with lots of situations in school with other students. How often do you really think it's a big kids pushing around a little kid? I would say a tiny fraction of "bullying" incidents. Growing up, kids learn a lot of life, and at times it's tough lessons. Today's helicopter parents don't want their sweet angels to ever get their feeling hurt. Life isn't always fairies and rainbows. Now if a child is truly physically assaulted in a way that causes injuries, it should be reported, but that doesn't happen often. A pushing match or a few fists thrown usually handles the situation on it's own and it's done with.

I agree, Hollynla. These loony-tunes that shoot up schools are not the norm. It just seems like it. Kids need to get "turtle backs" and let a lot of the nonsense just roll off their backs. It'll go easier that way. Once you pick a fight you're up a creek without a decent wooden or aluminum paddle.
