Stories continue to show up in the local news about children being bullied by other children. The lead article in the Indianapolis Star today “Bullied Child Spurs Mom to Act” is simply one more example of the problem. Parents are frustrated by the inability of teachers and administrators to control the behavior, administrators are frustrated by the legal constraints they must work under, and children are damaged by the failure of appropriate protective measures.
