    Name and shame policy might also result in violent attacks on the bully and his / her family, for which the school would get the blame. Unless, of course, you are confident that all people and members of the community are the calm, reasonable people who are typical of today’s society.

    SchoolsImprove Yes…it’s not the job of schools to protect bullies….but to protect their victims. Think they’d know basics like that.
