WOW my son's school doesn't mess around with bullies!

I just found out that at my son's school they call the cops if they find out any of the older kids at the school are bullying! I want to say they're doing it with kids in 5th grade or higher. Talk about a zero tolerance policy...

Hmmm. I am always glad to hear a school cracking down on bullying but it seems to me that the police have real crimes to deal with and not 10 year olds...

a 10 year old that commits assault and battery is no less of a criminal because they are 10- and most bullys will end up committing assault and battery if they are not detered early. just sayin'.

I agree that the police need to be called in certain situations, but this seems a bit extreme.

Honestly I think this is kinda a good idea, since it will get parents to stop their kids from bullying instead of making excuses for them repeatedly. Hopefully the police never have to be called though, since no child deserves to get in trouble with the law for being a brat when their parents never told them not to be. KWIM?

Re: WOW my son's school doesn't mess around with bullies!

I wonder what constitutes "bully" or not? Some things are obvious bullying, others, not so much.

It definitely is good for schools to take it seriously, though; dh has been dealing with a lot of these kinds of issues lately, and it is a very frustrating matter.

I'm not sure how it works in the States but schools here often have a police officer assigned who is also a community liaison and regularly visits the school. Also, bullies can commit assault, theft and any number of petty crimes that adults report a file charges for. I don't see it being any different.
