    this isn't a debate about private vs public schools. any school that lumps kids together in classrooms based on their age has these problems.

    And it's spelled cliques.

    Bullying would not happen near as often if kids were taught to disrespect it when it occurs. The problem is, in primary school through high school, it is still "cool" to make fun of others. When kids (and their immature parents) stop finding it funny to laugh at the fat girl, bullying will no longer be effective, and bullies will stop doing it.

    IMO, the idea that fat kids/nerds/etc. are fun to tease does not originate with kids. It comes from adults. So I don't think the way the school system is organized is the origin of the problem.
    Darwinism would point out that man survived through teamwork, which bullying would interfere with. It is the school system that separates students into individualist cells, encouraging this disorder. But what is suspiciously not suggested in this debate is encouraging students to fight back, even justifying the unfairness of the victims ganging up on a bully or having a victim's older brother teach him a lesson. Ironically, the excuse the educationists use is that fighting back would disturb the class as a group. This hypocrisy is explained by the fact that the educationists themselves are cowards. An even deeper explanation is that their job is to create cowardly economic cannon fodder for the plutocrats.

    In order to have a productive instead of a class-biased economy, the schools should imitate the successful development of athletic talent. Classes should be divided into teams. The team with the highest quiz scores will get Friday off, the losing team will have to come in on Saturday.
