I'm sure they want to get pay raises for all the bullies they have to put up with. Bully pay will need to be added to some folks depending on the districts they are in soon. lol

"Certainly, students harassing teachers isn't new. John Ristow remembers an incident from his early days as a teacher's assistant in Alpena, Mich. A student in the class was upset that he was singled out by the lead teacher for disrupting other students who were trying to study. When Ristow passed him in the hall later that day, the middle school student lashed out.
"It was very nasty swear words that were extremely demeaning to my character," said Ristow, who now is head of communications for the Broward Teachers Union in Florida.
Ristow held out his hand and said, "Stop."
A security officer came by and asked if Ristow wanted her to take the boy to the principal's office. He said no, deciding to resolve the issue directly with the teacher and student instead. He brought both of them together, they discussed how inappropriate the behavior was and told the student he would face a suspension if it happened again.
"It never happened again," Ristow said."

Well there's not much recourse because, you know, kids have rights too !

From your link:

The student, Katherine Evans, took the page down but was suspended for three days and removed from her Advanced Placement classes. She later was represented by the American Civil Liberties Union in a lawsuit against the principal of the Pembroke Pines Charter High School, arguing that her right to freedom of speech had been violated. She settled for $15,000 to cover her legal fees and her suspension was wiped from her record.

This is just the new frontier but I'm confused by the OP's attitude towards it all. What we need, what we have needed for a long time now, is an agreed upon code of conduct from students. Once broken, whether on school grounds or outside, the student should face consequences including expulsion.

[MOD CUT/off topic]

There is nothing in the article the indicates that teachers want yours or anyone else's "boo hoos" about possible student bullying.

Yes it is new frontier. Kids are getting bolder about what they are doing and who they are doing it to.
It doesn't faze some whether it's another kid or an adult.

Complete insanity is running wild in our schools thanks to unions and government indoctrination from the homosexual agenda to global warming to this entire bullying nonsense and folks wonder why our kids can't graduate. Now we got teachers crying about being bullied. It's ridiculous anymore.

WHERE in the article YOU posted is there a quote from a single teacher who is "crying about being bullied"?

It's the other way around in my kids school. Teachers are a bunch of bullies lording it over kids because they can't interact with adults.......
