I think schools have a responsibility to provide a safe environment for all students, which means taking bullying and harassment seriously--especially if there's a pattern of such behavior. Obviously, teachers and staff can't know about *every* incident on campus, but they can set a good example by incorporating lessons on tolerance and respect. News stories about bullied teens committing suicide should be a wake-up call for everyone!

It's kind of sad to think of schools getting sued. I'd rather see a law (with funding!) that requires schools to have some kind of bullying awareness program for the kids - and for the teachers and principals.

I want to say yes, but I wonder how much teachers and administrators can really know about what's going on with kids -- especially between facebook and cell phones. When it erupts in the classroom or on the playground it's likely administrators don't know the context.
