Public Education is being mobbed and bullied...


 "The prevention of bullying cannot begin in the classroom with the teacher and her/his students. That's the wrong approach.  It has to start with school district superintendents, and district directors, and regional superintendents, and regional directors, and then principals, and assistant principals, treating their employees with courage and respect.   That is not happening. We--and I mean educators throughout our nation's schools--have no true leadership on this issue.  We have no one who "gets it;" who "gets" that we will never, ever keep children safe from bullying without keeping employees in schools safe from the same.  In fact, many of those leading our school districts were/are the biggest bullies of all.  Either their bullying tactics are celebrated as 'tough yet effective' leadership or they were promoted to get them into regional and district offices so that they were away from children, but still making 'the big bucks.'

 So, to start in the class room with 'scared-they-will-lose-their-jobs-if-they-displease-the-boss' teachers is just plain futile."
