Letter: Identify likely bullies, then enforce penalties
The state should not be defining which groups of students are most likely to be bullied. The state needs to identify which types of persons are most likely to become bullies, then adopt a zero tolerance policy with regard to its penalty. When the state makes an attempt at identifying which groups or group is most likely to be bullied they are just segregating one from the other.
