Zero tolerance

To the Editor: I've said it before and I'm going to say it again. No one should be bullied.  There should be zero tolerance in the schools — three strikes and the bully is out.  

#1 Call the parents to pick up the bully immediately.  

#2  Send a certified letter to the bully's parents that the child will be sent to an alternative school if their child bullys again.  

#3  The bully is not allowed back in this school again and sent to an alternative school.

That might get the attention, not only of the parents, but also of the one doing the bullying. Maybe other parents will start to take notice and do a little more disciplining at home.
