Bullying at school?

Should somebody get fired for this?

Watch what happens to a student — with a teacher’s involvement — at Kopachuck Middle School in the Peninsula School District in Washington state last February. The video was taken by other students and recently posted by King5News.com.

The teacher, John Rosi, wrote this letter explaining what happened and saying that it was all “horseplay.”

And the teacher’s attorney says of this video the same thing: The incident was “horseplay, not bullying.”

In that bullying means repeated aggressive behavior intended to hurt another person, it may be that one incident doesn’t qualify.
