What… the… FUCK?!
School logic. You protect yourself and others and get punished because you choose to act rather than be silent and let them do whatever they want. Its the policy they have for everything, from bullying to this.
No, but this is serious!
At my school- which is a really chill place, we’ve had one violent altercation that I know of and I was present, it was stopped within seconds (it was in a class where the teacher was trained in combat)- we were doing review of the rules and if someone is beating you up, if you fight back, you’re liable, too. You cannot defend yourself. You are supposed to go get a teacher, but as you’re being physically assualted, you probably don’t have much room to move, so a friend of mine asked “So, if you’re getting beaten up, all you can do is curl up into a ball and say “Please stop?” and the teacher looked him dead in the eye and responded “Yes.”
