Bullying flourishes in any school


The recent scandal over the bullying allegedly caught on mobile camera at Melbourne's Xavier College seems to surprise some people: this is after all a prominent private school noted for its religious affiliations.

Bullies still bully, usually without sanctions. The ones who deny this are typically either bullies or their teacher-colluders - Juliette Hughes
