Bullying is wrong in all shapes and forms!

Typically it is the "weird" and "different" students who get bullied because they do not fit into the "normal" student category. For some reason in elementary, middle, and especially high school, students feel like they have to conform to a certain "norm." It's not considered acceptable if you're a little different or choose to do your own thing. Teachers in all levels of education should be teaching their students that it IS okay to be yourself and be your own person. Our country is moving into a place where people ARE DIFFERENT and we as teachers need to preach to our students that being different is a good thing. Students need to learn that even if someone does not look, act, or like the same things as them, that does not mean that they need to be bullied or be treated differently. Everyone is their own person and should be open to getting to know all different kinds of people.

If you would think the strong and tough are save, you are wrong. Bullying makes no exceptions. Everyone can become a target.

Some kids are bullied because they are "weird". Many of us who live with mental illness report being bullied, but you fail to include us on your list.
