Recently my cousin got in trouble for saying something inappropriate to some of his classmates, who were teasing him. Although I realize he shouldn’t have said what he said, I want to know why he was the only one who got punished, when he was just trying to defend himself.
Shouldn’t the bullies have been reprimanded? Where was the teacher when all of this teasing was going on, and why didn’t he or she do anything about it? Isn’t it the job of the teacher to maintain order and discipline in the classroom?
Schools need to create better discipline programs so that students are safe, because a child should not have to feel threatened while attending school.
