How about we staff our schools with teachers and principals with the authority and stones enough to smack the crap out of ill-behaviored punks?
Pick on a kid and get caught? Then you get your bare butt switched in front of the entire school. Hey it will only take a few instances of that and nobody will want to be a bully.
That fear of being a bully will carry along into adulthood.
Of course we can't spank our kids right? That would be abuse right?
edit: It shouldn't be the responsibility of the poor kid being bullied to provide the solution. The ones being bullied for the most part will be too scared to fight back.
Instead of No Child Left Behind, why not Tan All Bullies' Behinds ?

There is an increase in bullying behavior, it would seem. Part of the problem undoubtedly stems from difficult times around us, but bullying was always there.
We seem to focus a lot on individual cases, etc., as there are many dimensions to this: be it child, or an adult, the same phenomenon under different names.
Detecting a bully is rather easy, if not patently obvious. Some would claim they are psychopaths, some would say they are lost souls, some would claim that bullies are victims themselves.
The question remains: how do you stop a bully?
What do you think?

I don't think that there is actually an increase in bullying behavior. I think there is an increase in wimpy kids that can't handle it.
