Is bullying encouraged in Ontario Schools?

Quite possibly a pinnacle of the north-american school system, complete proof of individual irresponsibility.

Read this horrifying depiction of one case of bullying, which lasted for months (and it's probably still going on), in front of many with no actual effects on the bullies.

Read this mind-numbing instance of what a school system thinks it does to "protect bullies". I mean it's complete double-think that they "protect the bullied" - it is obvious that they in fact protect the bullies:

Quote from
Carol Speers, the superintendent of education, insists West Credit has an anti-bullying program and has been very responsive to Lindsay's complaints. They set up a mediation between Lindsay and the mean girls at the end of October, offered her coping strategies, referred her for counselling in November -- which finally came through just this week -- and organized a co-op for her this semester so she can limit her time at West Credit. "It's unfortunate that Lindsay perceives the school wasn't doing anything for her. They've been supporting her as best as they can."

I mean some people are either really brain dead or should be thrown in jail for a long time for aiding and abating criminal bullies. I mean their plan above has nothing to do with the bullies but puts the bullied through all kinds of hoops and really idiotic schemes of "mediation" and "counseling", some taking months to "come through". And, of course, in clear double-think, it's the fault of the victim for not seeing all this goodness being done for her.

So if I understand this correctly, when your house is stormed, you are beaten up etc, YOU get counseling, mediation and coping strategies, coping with the perpetrators that is, to whom nothing significant actually happens. Is that how the Ontario law will look like?

This Carole Speers must feel very proud - maybe you want to let her know otherwise.

If this happened to my kids, I would somehow hold these idiots personally responsible!
