But yeah, kids are way too sensitive these days. That's one of the byproducts of telling them that they're all winners and should be proud of themselves when they accomplish nothing.
And if you cannot perceive bullying beyond physical violence...then that's wtf I am talking about!

So true. And all this because of the generation of deluded narcissists we're raising this days. Take a look at to our kids. All hoked up in the virtual word, games, social networks...Once unhooked and facing reality, they get intimidated, scared and feel unprotected.
The Faith Fellowship Christian School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available at the school.
It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administration programs. Source (pdf)

And they say the same things about Americans in Canada.
"bullying' happens every where, and over anything.
Schools have never been a 'kind' place.

While I agree with you about kids having to stand up to bullies....
This was a 15 year old kid being bullied by teachers. That's a step above and beyond dealing with it yourself. I don't care if you agree or not, but at 15 I sure as hell wouldn't have felt comfortable confronting my teachers alone if I was being harassed. And, for the record, I did experience violent behavior in the Canadian school system on two different occasions from teachers, both instances dealt with.
I think something that is important here is the fact that these were teachers, that alone makes this very disturbing. It's also disturbing that these teachers, who are shaping the minds of the next generation of kids, would not only behave in such a manner professionally, but also to be that completely ignorant of the 2nd largest country in the world, one of the countries that borders their own and is one of their largest trading partners and suppliers of oil.

I would think if the student showed some kind of offense to the teasing, the teacher should have stopped or told him they were just teasing him. Teacher's walk a fine line, not all children are thick skinned and some can be very vulnerable.
