I believe that the principal, counselors, and teachers, as well as coaches in a school system all have a very important role in educating kids about bullying. I think that the issue should be addressed in weekly school student, teacher and principal meetings and this should be openly discussed. I think that teachers should instruct their class members about how to report bullying and what not to do, as well. Parent-teachers group meetings are important and should include this subject as well and go over responsibilities of parents, teachers, and other school personnel in addressing bullying in every school.
I think students should be educated but also teachers and parents as well. It's not uncommon for a student to be going through a time of bullying and neither teachers or parents are knowledgeable in the proper approach or tactics to use in order to support the student being bullied.
Sure, they have to be. But, If you're only going to focus on countering it, then it's like saying, "it's normal to have bullies as long as you know how to defend yourself."
I would encourage focusing on both the bullied and the bully. Bullying should not be encouraged in school, and the bully should get expelled. At the same time, teaching students how to defend themselves is really beneficial as well.
