Does it make sense to you that many schools have a policy where, if a child is attacked by another child, they cannot defend themself or else they are considered just as guilty as the attacker?
I have heard of this policy from many schools, from friends and on Fluther. Schools have a “No violence policy” or “No tolerance policy” where if one child is attacked by another child, and the victim defends themself, they are considered just as guilty as the attacker. Both children are disciplined.
Does it make sense to you that the victim is supposed to stand there and not try to defend himself/herself? The child is expected to stand there with hands by their side while the other child punches them in the face (or whatever)?
