I agree with the Anti Bullying pink shirt day. However it should be a daily routine, for everyone to stop the bullying.
The teachers and teacher’s aids shall be trained to be more aware of not only physical bullying but verbal bullying as well. Be more vigilant. The disruptive children and bully ones shall be segregated from the other children.
The children being bullied shall be encouraged to let the teacher know and the teacher shall act on it.
The police shall be involved immediately. It is not right that the children being bullied have to look over their shoulders until they are 12 years old. It has to be stopped now. The police shall be called in to have a serious talk with the Bully and the parent(s). About the consequences he/she will have to deal with if the bullyinh does not stop
The teachers, councilors, principals, parents and in particular the whole system has to stop down playing the actions of the bully. Own up and be aware that the fact that it does occur in your environment. We trust our children to be in your care and when they come home victims of bullying. It is not right. Also that you choose to do nothing. The bullies should have their own classroom or school.
One last point I would like to make. Natives bully Natives. Non Natives bully Natives and vise-versa. They ALL should be dealt with regardless of who you are.
