Something I've noticed

Don't you find it strange that if a kid is being physically bullied (e.g. being puched, shoved, e.t.c) all he or she can really do is tell an adult and have them stop the bullying, or stand up to the bullies on their own.

On the other hand, if an adult was being punched or shoved by another adult, this would be classified as assault. The victim could then take legal action against the person who assaulted them.

How is this fair?

Re: Something I've noticed

I don't think adults would end up taking legal action either. It's just somehow more normal for kids to be fighting with each other, so it doesn't shock adults so much maybe? I eventually decided that school faculty don't care about students until something really big happens.

Yes, they will take legal action if an adult was assaulted. Do some research and you'll see students get charged a lot more often for assaulting a teacher or other adult than assaulting a student.

Re: Something I've noticed

Sadly, in an ageist system such as this, a kid could do something a lot worse to another kid than an adult might to an adult (e.g: beatwithabaseballbat to punch), and only the adult would be charged. It's very bullshitty.

oh and also No one has any rights. We're free, rights create invisible restrictions. But we live in a society where the majority accepts rights to be true.

I mean, I agree when you look at it through this perspective, but at the same time I don't think we should be policing schools and giving the school-to-prison pipeline even more ideas.
