Bullies must be stopped

IS there a bullying crisis in our schools? According to the National Parents Council Primary, half of all parents have complained: the cost to the justice, health and education systems is put at €100m.

The figures emerge as -- separately -- one Dublin school expelled four students for posting abusive remarks about teachers on Facebook.

Bullying is a problem, possibly a serious one. Dealing with it should be a priority.
