Fear of bullying is stopping some children getting an education —Children’s Commissioner

In an occupied country, bullying is the occupiers’ “survival” policy. Remove Bullying from New Zealand Schools, and pakeha will have to pack their bags and go home.—Moderator TEAA

“Bullying is a problem in all schools,” Commissioner  said in a report which will be released at a school violence summit in Wellington, March 16, 2009.

The report was prepared amid “indications from all quarter”‘ that school violence was affecting the welfare of a many students, she said.

“Calls to my office, our engagement with children and young people, the Office’s Young People’s Reference Group and media coverage of some severe incidents indicated it was timely to do an independent inquiry into peer bullying, violence and abuse,” she said.

The report recommends changes to the school system and offers a “comprehensive guide to understanding and successfully dealing with bullying and violence in schools”, Kiro said.

Bullying transcends beyond the school gate by way of Internet and cellphones., she said.

The following excerpts are from her comments on the report:

“Students cannot learn effectively if they are physically or verbally abused, victims of violence or bullying, or if their school is unsafe,” she said.

“The extensive reach of these forms of bullying often mean the victim gets no respite and the bullying is not restricted to time at school but is ongoing.”

“This report is not to blame and shame. While there are indications that some schools are not dealing with this problem appropriately, more schools than not are committed to providing a safe environment and have clear whole school policies and procedures to ensure the issue of bullying is addressed,” she said.

“This inquiry is focused on the way forward, with solutions and equipping teachers and schools with information on how to deal with bullying when it happens.”

“We stress that aggressive, violent and bullying antisocial behaviour will only be effectively reduced when the intervention involves an ongoing commitment at multiple levels,” Dr Kiro said.

“New Zealanders have a high tolerance for violence and while schools cannot be responsible for the ills of society, schools can make a difference in how violence is dealt with.”

Education Ministurd Anne Tolley reported said  that there was no easy solution to bullying, however she has read the report “with interest”.

Bullying in New Zealand Schools Highest in OECD

“It appears that we do have high levels of physical and emotional bullying in New Zealand schools in comparison to other countries. This is historical. We’ve had this for quite some time in our schools.”Children’s Commissioner, Cindy Kiro.

“The effects of bullying are massive. We’ve had cases at the most extreme where young victims have actually taken their own lives.” She said.

“I’m going to try to get a sense of how widespread it is. The whole point is about how we build a culture of non-violence towards children. That includes at home, in schools and other community settings.”

Isn’t the pathetic whitewash of the cognitive dissonance glaringly obvious?

Bullying is an indispensable part of New Zealand’s national psyche. Violence is the bedrock of their existence. The culture of bullying and violence is New Zealand’s life insurance policy.

Other than by bullying and violence, what other mechanisms does New Zealand Children’s Commissioner suggest to prolonging their illegitimate and illegal occupation of Maori land?

How could New Zealanders bring up their kids to be upright, moral, courageous, exemplary, even, heaven forbid, normal citizens, while they live off stolen property and immoral earnings?
