In my old school there was a thing that happend once. Some people say that bullying in school are things that happens often and all the time but I think this was serious enough to call bullying. This happend 2 years ago when I was in fifth grade. My friend's friend was chased out of school by my classmates ( the people in sixth grade left one year early so we were the oldest). The chased her out of the school grounds and almost half the way home. The teachers didn't do anything to stop it. ( one tried but failed). I've never heard anything about it. They never talked about it. To them it seemed like nothing happend. I think that it says to the students, "It doesn't matter If your bullied. No one will help you".

That is what it sayed to me at the time. What do you think?? Should teachers treat it like nothing happend??

Honestly? They won't do anything until there is a suicide. Then they'll make up some dumb ass shit like how they were unable to do "anything"

Bullying is serious, but most of the times people fail to realise the impact until after the damage is done.

My lil bro was bullied a lot when he started secondary school. Had like a thousand meetings with the head teacher who done nothing. My lil bro was fortunate that he knew someone in the higher grade who helped him out. I personally had to deal with those scumbag, but they run away from me when they realise I wasn't gonna just "talk" with them.

Yeh, schools need to do more. Fire all the headteachers and get some army officers!!! or something!

I'm actually a person who was bullied. Teachers did nothing about it other than complain to other teachers that I was being annoying. My rage started to burst when I was younger and that was my answer to bullying. Though some people eventually used that to distract the teachers away from class. Eventually, I just stopped caring, apparently acting like a stoner because that was how people would say I acted during school.
I will say, I did meet some of the people who once upon a time did bully me but they were actually cool people. Stupid, but cool. We became friends and honestly, I haven't seen them bully people. I just supposed they matured.

Teachers need to do more though. If they could have prevented it, maybe I would be less Berserker. They need to at least find some way to create a solution for everyone so to lower bullying but honestly, I think they want a distraction from teaching and everything themselves.

I was also bullied when I was young, I told my mum and we moved to another town. I live there know and we moved around a bit. I was bullied at all 4 school i changed between. Later we found out that my teacher from the 1 school was spreading shit around to the parents so my mom didn't follow the pattern so they didn't talk to her and their kids followed their example. Now I'm starting 8 grade and this is the first school in my whole school life that bullying hasn't come up.

I was bullied. I redirected the pain upon other people. It embittered me.

To tell the truth, it isn't the teacher's responsibility. Bullying start in their family. And it wont stop until it becomes public. There is bullying in my school, and I remember one of my classmates being bullied. He then transferred and now he's like the most popular guy over there. I didn't know he was being bullied until he transferred.
The victim must act as well, and not let others bully him/her.
Staying quiet wont solve anything.

Ah, another thing.. Remember the Korean who killed like 32 people and then committed suicide? In Virginia Tech? OK, what he did was stupid. And what did the newspapers said? That it was due to too much videogames... I was like, WTH?!?!? He was severely bullied because he didn't speak well English....

You should know that some people do tell but no one belives in them. I know a person who told her parents and they called her liar. And bullying does not often start in the family. If a peson gets chased around school I don't think their family has anything to do with it. But maybe it does I'm not an expert it's just what I'm thinking. But in my country the students is in the school hands on the school time. If there was bullying and the teacher don't do anything the parents can sue them.

Im gonna agree with you there. I was bullied at a school I used to attend, and it wasn't only the students, but the teachers as well. I was probably the only Asain in that school. I told my mom over and over that I wanted to leave...but It never happened. In the end I learned to stand up to them. Eventually my classmates stopped being assholes and I did have my friends who helped made it a lil easier.

I don't blame my mum, I understand the position she was in (reason I won't say).

I never got over it though, one teacher in particular. If I meet him I'm pretty sure I will beat him up.*sigh* my life is full of grudges....

EDIT: Oh i finally left that school when I moved...the best thing that ever happened.

Obviously something did happen. I always stick up for people that are getting bullied because bullying is wrong. Those people that bully though probably are insecure (I know this from experience). What I do sometimes is call that person primitive because they are for acting the way that they do or you could just bully them back, but that isnt the best solution. It is very difficult for most to defend themselves against bullies, but hold your ground and if that doesnt work get an adult to help you. Inform the school board about what the teachers did they will do something about the teachers and the bullies. Hope this helps.

Honestly, if people can't realize that highschool is only 18 years of your life and they commit suicide, then they should suffer in hell. Only the strong survive, that's the rule of mother nature. The only people who work against mother nature is us human beings.

Faculty does try to take bullying seriously, but when you're on some asshole's cross hair, there's little you can do to stop em. I mean, they can't be watching all the time. For some kids its a problem I used to try to help people like that, by kicking the shit out of punk bitch "bullies". But its just Social Darwinism man, it has and will forever exist.

Are your refering to people with strong minds or people with strong bodies? I believe that the most intelligent should live. These bullies most of the time are not intelligent and are just physically stronger. So you should be a little more clear.

NO!!! ABSOLUTELY NOT!!! The teachers should do something about it and punish those brats that chased out that poor kid!! Not treat it as the most normal thing in the world!!! That's what's wrong with most teachers these days!! They don't help anyone anymore!!! What's wrong with our society!? Has it been corrupted by evil!?

Teachers should help work the problem out. But the principal should do more about it.

You haven't known true bullying until you've been to a common English secondary school.
Someone committed suicide on non-uniform day because of the teasing.
Everyone gets bullied even the popular people.
Actually not very safe place to be, a lot of peeps prob carry knives.
From personal experience:
On the school bus - I was hit by an apple, football, got spat on, chewinggum stuck in my hair, flour poured everywhere and a disgusting tomato sandwich smeered on my trouser leg. And that is not including the verbal abuse. Someone also smoked, illegally, in my face.
There were also terrible health hazards:
You didn't want to go to the toilet because they were dirty, stunk of smoke and people sometimes looked over the tops and watched you.
The corridors stunk.
And they were often so narrow you would get squashed (to the point of tears if you were a year 7)

Anyone fancy becoming an exchange student? Not likely.
