    If your child was being bullied is it is the duty and the obligation of the school to inform you?

    I have seen bullying take take over the structure of the public school system.

    Do you think that it is the obligation of the school to inform you as the parent that your child has fallen prey to being a victim of being bullied or do you think as long as it is handled by the school the is no need to worry the parent with the issues?

    If you could elaborate to why you answered your question the way you did that would be awesome.

    Kids are suffering everyday but parents are also being bullied by school staff. You never know your answer could just help a parent or a child.

    I believe that it would be because it is the school's responsibility to provide a safe and healthy learning environment, anything less than that needs to be addressed. I believe that things need to be done at a higher level.

    I believe it is prudent and the obligation of the school to let parents know what they observe.  Unfortunately, it is not always seen by adults. Many bullies are very astute at hiding their antics.

    First and foremost,I believe a parent needs to create an open and safe nurturing environment for the child so that they child can comfortable talk to the parents about it.  Parents need to ask questions about the child's day, who did they see, what happened at school.  The child often wants to share but parents are too busy to listen.

    It will be a cold day in he!! before I allow any school official to bully me and they had better look out if I found out they knew my child was being bullied and I was not contacted.

    It is a complex issue and EVERYONE, parent, teacher, child admin, need to be open and communicate readily problems and successes of our children

    Yes, it is the obligation of the school to notify parents, and to monitor bullying, since it is so hurtful and affects the way a child feels and learns. The school notifies parents about so many other things, that are much less damagaging to a child and to his/her parents, and this is much more important and critical. If the staff is bullying a parent, and won't give a straight answer or just blames their child for misbehaving, the parent needs to take a stand and find out what is really going on and why. The parent needs to have a real understanding talk with their child and let them speak without blaming or shouting.

      Thank you for choosing my aswer as "best". I have a lot to say when it comes to how the school principal and some teachers behave and blame your child when the child causing the problems belongs to a teacher there.
