"Imagine if, at your workplace, you were constantly harassed, humiliated, and even physically attacked. You would probably dread going to work and call in sick often to avoid it.
You may talk to your boss or someone in HR to see if the problem could be fixed.
If it couldn’t, you would quit.
You may even file charges if you were physically harmed, or take out a restraining order against your perpetrators.
You have recourse.
You have options.
You have choice.
- Children who are bullied in school have very few choices and very little recourse.
- Required by law to attend an assigned public school, many children and their parents have minimal agency to withdraw from a bullying scenario...
- In those cases, bullied children must endure daily battering that would be criminal if inflicted on adults.
- Is it any wonder that we have a rising suicide rate among children?..."
