2 wrongs don't make a right
A school assignment from a teacher was that every student was to write a list of children who have bullied them. This sounds inefficient enough, but one kid had the most complaints against him from bullying. This kid was suspended from school for 2 weeks without recess and lunch recess. Because kids said he bullied them. You may think this kid deserved this, but is it better to punish someone severely instead of making sure that the kid learns his lesson properly? This is just revenge. This school was too strict on this student. Making him public enemy #1got him being bullied, and as Gandhi said" An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind." This system is completely too strict, and cannot be fair and will truly help no one.
