Time Event
On bullying
Bullying is the cause du jour in Educationland these days. There are a lot of promos being aired, lots of meetings being held. As with most things schools promote these days, there isn't a lot of substance there. Like other high-profile causes taken up by American schools, the real purpose of all the meetings and activities can be defined in two statements.
1) They make educators feel righteous.
2) The real target is normal parents with ordinary kids, not the bullies or their parents.
If that seems excessively cynical to you, allow me to unpack it for you.Collapse )
