Even if the teacher does actually takes action against the bully, all they do is put 'em in detention or give them a suspension from school.
That's not really a deterrent...the bully still bullies you, like, the day after they've served their detention, and even under suspension, they target you when you're on your way home.

Another problem failed to be brough up is that teachers are also now acting as bullies and ganging up on students. I for one when I was in middle shool was bullied on a daily basis and was in the nurse's office more injuries because of it. I had the assistant principal threatening to suspend me for being gay saying it is categorized as inappropriate behavior. I would say bullying has reached the unfixable point if the people who are supposed to be protecting these kids are actually the ones bullying them as well.

What you fail to recognize is that teachers, especially in the U.S. (California even more so) are extremely limited in how they can respond to bullying. Things are generally better now, but there is room for improvement. However, teachers ARE still very limited in what they can legally do to address bullying. You may write off 'go to the principal's office' as passing the problem over to someone else... but the key thing there is that ONLY the principal and the dean (if there is one) has the authority to suspend or expel bullies. Aside from say, a stern talking to or detention, there isn't much that a teacher can really do within the law to address the problem. Especially with the hostile working environment that sue-happy parents make it.
