    But, we're not talking about lawyers, doctors, executives, politicians, managers, or business owners in this thread. Are we?

    It's intellectually dishonest to insinuate that it's ok to have dicked up teachers, because there are dicked up people in every other profession, too. Especially, since you just said that I'm, "driving you ****ing crazy", and that I should, "start making since anytime, now".

    Perhaps if we didn't have so many crappy teachers, we wouldn't have so many crappy people in every other profession.

    So your plan must be to reform the educational system to make sure it is more efficient? Perhaps we can give them some motivation with things like performance related inflation adjusted raises and benefits like people in the private sector demand (but oft never get, which is Obama's fault I'm sure you'd assume).

    Sounds like it might cost money. Sounds like big government. Sounds like your finally coming over to our side!
    and so it goes...

    I'm all for performance related raises and bennies, right after they're hit with the reality that substandard performance will just as quickly get them a pink slip and a spot in the unemployment line, just like people in the private sector.

    Well, I never went to high school, but I can tell you there are bullies in adult life as well.
    There are bullies in the workplace, bullies in social clubs and charitable organizations, bullies on internet forums, bullies in the drug and party scene.
    I can't think of any place that's really bully-free.
    Any time you get three or more people together, two of them are likely to gang up on the third. It's just human nature.

    Girl-bullying is often less physical than boy-bullying. Often it involves little or no physical confrontation. I've heard it referred to as "whispering campaigns"; gossiping, humiliating the victim, destroying the victim's credibility and social status.
    This does not end after high school.

    If I could go back and say something to any one of these dead girls, it would be this:

    If you don't do something to change this situation, you'll be dead by this time next week.
    So do something. Anything.
    Rip off your clothes and walk down the school hallway naked.
    Take the fire extinguisher off the wall and bash the lead bully's face in with it.
    Do something so insane that things will have to change forever.
    Steal your mom's credit card, buy a bus ticket, and run away to Mexico.
    There are no limits; nothing is too extreme, because the alternative is, you're about to be dead, and there's nothing more extreme or irreversible than that.
    So you are free to do anything you can dream of.
    Isn't that a liberating thought?

    Lol. You are really making a strong argument that because most (you sure make it seem like it anyway) teachers are bad at teaching, bullies pick on kids to the point they kill themselves.
    and so it goes...
