  •  You don't learn to deal with bullying in school. (2+ / 0-)

    You don't learn to deal with bullying in school.
    You suffer.  You can suffer silently, or you can fight back and 'share' punishments, but you will suffer.
    There is no hope for retribution, and no hope for escape.
    In the real world, 'assault' is a crime, 'sexual harassment' is a crime, 'libel' and 'slander' are crimes.
    In the real world, if you're in a situation where you're subjected to systematic oppression, you have the power to leave.  As a child, leaving (truancy) is a crime.
    School is backwards.
    The only thing you learn from bullying in school is despair.
