To what extent should schools be held responsible for bullying?

I think the principle/staff should be disciplined as well if they fail to protect kids when it is brought to their attention.Needless to say after our daughter was hit in the face by this huge kid, she was transferred to a private school!

When my 6 year old daughter was hit by an 8 year old boy, the principle didn't even contact the boys parents after we came in to complain. My daughter was terrified to go to school because this boy was in her first grade class!

Schools need to be held accountable for 100% of the bullying that goes on during school time. And the schools need to make the bullys and their parents accountable. Punish the parents of bullies and see how fast the bully learns to control himself.

100% pierce the school system. document all your conversations. and hold teachers and board of education,along with bus drivers responsible. then go to the school and make yourself a fixture,and gather support,don't let the bully hone his skill to HS

seem's the edgewater school system has a high tolerance to school bullying, and for them it's much easier to cater to the bully and bully parents, the victim's must be bringing it on therselve's (ans) yes they are,focus on teachers and BOE members

These "no tolerance" policies need to focus more on the bully and not the bullied. Penalizing a kid who defends himself is inexcusable. In the end, parents need to instill decent values in their kids, and teach kids to stand up for themselves.

most schools have the no tolerance, but they will still turn their heads to it. I think they should be held accountable.

Yes. I transfered my son from a small private school to a large public school after 2 years of bullying went unchecked. The public school has a no tolerance policy and is much more effective at controlling it. The small school seemed clueless.

If school officials have been notified and are aware of an incident of bullying and don't notify the parents of both students, they are responsible!

The school should be held responsible if and only if they were aware of it. But by far, the bully himself/herself should be held accountable.
