In the end a trained psychiatrist or psychologist could have helped everyone in this situation:
- The angry, bullying teacher needed help because his anger is getting in the way of his work.
- The kid being bullied who took to pestering everyone to try to get a result. The teacher’s actions will probably just make matters worse.
- The other teacher who dismissed the problem.
- And most of all the bully needs help to stop, not to be taught how to be a better bully by an angry teacher.
