Bullies are cowards. They prey on others who appear to be weak. If they can, bullies attack from behind the veil of anonymity.
It is a school's responsibility to protect all children from bullies. It is the parent's responsibility to teach their children to respect all people.
The problem is the parents who are bullies. It is learned behavior.
Unfortunately, the bully is punished for their behavior. The parents go untouched. This is a case for family counseling. People arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol are ordered by the courts into counseling. The same should be done for the bully and their parents.
