I read something similar a few months ago. The effects of bullying never really go away.

they're young and very egocentric.
I feel like kids should be taught how to handle those situations, rather than trying to snuff out bullying altogether. Some people are just assholes
Yeah. Kids facing bullying rarely know what to do. When they do try to handle it, they do so themselves and their own strategies isn't always the best (e.g. cutting, and then ...suicide). So your point is very important. Some people just won't like you, no matter what you do; will want to pick on you, etc. If you know how to deal with it effectively and don't let it get to you, it won't affect you as much.

hmmm...well...bullying is not what it was in the 1980's. these kids are tryna kill you. that said...sometimes the repercussions are worse these days. 1. if u fight back...the school is not on your side and there's a high chance that this incident can fucc your record. 2. if u fight back the bully will most likely go get some friends and come back and kill your ass. Literally.
Yes...teach the kids to deal with it and fight back but the school needs to be on the bullied person's side and actually punish the bully. You're not going to do away with bullies but show these kids that are getting bullied that they have support and help. Show these kids that they will not be punished worse than the bully if they fight back.
