Why schools don't allow students to fight back in self defense?
School bully is not always the toughest kids in the school and the kid been bully is not always weaker, but in primary school or high school, regardless of the reason, school does not allow fighting in school, thus, sometime, the kid been bully is simply afraid to fight back, due to fear of stuff such as, getting expel. But sometime, the teachers don't have enough power to really protect kids from bullies either. Thought?
Per the mistaken belief that violence begets violence, so the student hitting someone once to stop a beating is somehow guaranteeing the bully will beat them more. In reality, many bullies will only stop because the consequences (pain or discipline by the school) are greater than the pleasure of dominating others or taking their things.
There is also the practical problem of schools not knowing how instigated things in some situations. If you ban self-defense, the guilty party is by definition the one not crying on the floor.
I remember in school there was this bully, everybody was afraid to fight back, due to fear of expel, till one day a kid had enough and bash him up, when the teacher ask, we all denier seen that kid bashing up the bully, so he won't get in trouble
