Teacher Bullying: because this issue wasn't already bad enough.
So the issue of bullying in schools is already a giant mess. Generally, the victims are the ones that get blamed by teachers and lots of people either turn a blind eye or repeat the old "boys will be boys" chant. It's sickening, and aside from certain movies and activists groups there hasn't been much done about it officially.
Knowing this, the following video boils my damn blood,
I've had a few experiences with teacher bullying myself. One time a dude pulled my pants down in class, and when I went to teacher about it, it was apparently my fault for wearing shorts. It was an embarrasing, debilitating experience. However, the fact that a grown ass woman would do this to an autistic child is sickening. She clearly has no idea how this kid is feeling or what he's going through, and she is in charge of a class that teaches kids with special needs. Having needed special needs myself when I was younger, this makes me so fucking angry. It makes me want to hang those teachers and burn that goddamn school to the ground. The worst part is that the teacher received little punishment for her actions, she didnt even get suspended from teaching.
So what should be done about this problem? Should there be stricter regulation by the government? Is it the teacher's responsibility, the parent's? Should it be left up to them? Bullying has become a huge disastrous problem in schools, and it has ruined many lives and will probably continue to, but what should be done when the people you're supposed to trust in are the worst offenders?
