  •  The problem with zero tolerance policies... (0+ / 0-) that they -will- be manipulated so that the bullies get the kid they're bullying in trouble under them.

      the zero tolerance only applies to who started it.

      In my experience the problem with zero tolerance policies getting the victim in trouble too is that it gives the administration the excuse to do the "It doesn't matter who started it" thing, when, in fact, it absolutely DOES matter.

      Hell, expand it to include goading someone into starting the fight themselves.
