    although ideally it should start there. I was talking about my high school. Our teachers did consider it part of their job to help us be good citizens of the world by teaching us to support each other and have each others' backs. In that culture, kindness was cool, meanness was the opposite of cool.

    There was one girl in my class who had a thyroid condition and resulting weight problems- and this was in an era when overweight teen girls were very uncommon. If anyone ever said anything nasty to her or about her, I never heard it. And anyone who did behave that way would have been considered a jerk.
