I love how most of the internet’s reaction is that they should be beat or implement some kind of violence or humiliation on these kids…really?!
How about building dialog and awareness on campus between the student body and parents and the school admin. Not just about respecting elders but bullying in general. The community is responsible for the youth to grow and learn. Beating them and shaming them is not a means to an end.
Middle school is a vicious stage for children. They need positive mentors to influence them.
