“If they can’t”
That’s the problem though.
HOPE puts all of the responsibility on the family with the child being bullied and none on the bullies who are allowed to continue bullying others at that same school.
It also links into unaccountable charter schools instead of fixing systemic flaws that need addressing, not giving up.
Bullies continue bullying, driving kids out of one school and into whatever nearby charter school is available, because travel time to another district will be long.
The bullying will drive charter school enrollment. It’s not a solution to bullying.
