1 April 2010 - school bullying

< yesterday -- tomorrow >

Education Reform Plan

When I was in school, bullying was controlled by punishing the victim. That worked well for everyone who had power; it discouraged reports and provided scapegoats. Today, with school shootings and suicides increasingly in the news, we need to up our game. There is a danger of accountability sneaking into the system through the public entrance. That’s why I believe that every school should stage an annual attack by a local extremist group or dangerous lunatic. Journalists will soon lose interest, and teachers and administrators will finally be able to return to the important business of oppressing the weak.


The part about punishing the victim is true, by the way.

give me a clue so sweet and true
