The Bully Project and Smart Project

Everyone get’s bullied at school even I was bullied too, and what do bullies learned, either; they might be a better leader  or work as a car mechanic,  I think not, but they would have trouble in a relationship and marriage. Look at the high risk of divorce rates these days.

Bullies will never learn, they will stay like bullies until they get arrested, and then they found out the hard way: “Why was I arrested?” He was bullying the other person for no apparently reason. Even though this bully was a teenager, he has no cognitive of thinking of what’s right and wrong – just poking and abusing, and possible killing his victim. 20 years later this bully would apologize to the victim’s parents, isn’t it too late.  Why let the bully out of prison or rehab? Have they seen movies on Lifetime Network, we let the bullies out, and they go back and get revenge, sounds like a movie of the week?  Where’s the justice?

Over l3 million American kids will be bullied this year, making it the most common form of violence experienced by young people in the nation. The new documentary film BULLY, directed by Sundance and Emmy-award winning filmmaker Lee Hirsch, brings human scale to this startling statistic, offering an intimate, unflinching look at how bullying has touched five kids and their families.

BULLY is a beautifully cinematic, character-driven documentary. At its heart are those with huge stakes in this issue whose stories each represent a different facet ofAmerica’s bullying crisis. Filmed over the course of the 2009/2010 school year, BULLY opens a window onto the pained and often endangered lives of bullied kids, revealing a problem that transcends geographic, racial, ethnic and economic borders. It documents the responses of teachers and administrators to aggressive behaviors that defy “kids will be kids” clichés, and it captures a growing movement among parents and youths to change how bullying is handled in schools, in communities and in society as a whole.

The movie follows five people, Alex, 12; Kelby 16; Ja’Meya, 14; David and Tina Long and Kirk and Laura Smalley. There stories are powerful, raw and true. The language may not be suitable to teenagers but they hear it at school anyway. Where else could they learn?

I think teachers should be more responsible for their students in class, like parents are more responsible for their child.

Giving the movie no rating, is a good thing, students, parents, teachers and administration of the education board should see what the parents goes through to protect their child. It’s a nightmare for the parents. The administrations are happy because they get a good salary and they don’t care about the students. The only thing they care is how to raise reading and math scores? The teachers are trying to educate their students, but evidently fights break out during the school year and that cause distraction and suspension of  good students and bad students. Are these students learning anything? Especially, repeat students who go to detention every day. Do they learn anything or do they get it, why there are in detention? It’s a vacation for the students. Doesn’t make any sense.

Why the students are complaining to the teachers of too much homework?  How can students learn if they don’t do their homework? Writing stupid answers on the test paper does not count as a grade, it’s a creative answer, but it’s an idiot’s answer to a smart question. Does that count as being smart? They have to read their assignments and memorize important facts. If they think, they don’t need the course out there in the real world? Then how can they solve a complex word problem? We use word problems every day.

If the students can solve complex relationship problems between boyfriend and girlfriend why can’t they solve a complex math problem?  Or any complex subject.  Stay in school and learn something.  Nothing is given to the student by hand or by spoon. They have to learn to earn a grade. Use their critical thinking in a good way, by researching the materials, the library is a great source not the internet.

Oh by the way, The Bully Project opens tonight nationwide check your listings.
