My experience: it’s really a question having to do with the individual teacher. Yes, it’s correct to say bullying is something that isn’t tolerated, absolutely. On the other hand, the ability of each teacher to effectively deal with problems of bullying, is another thing altogether.
And no: the karma issue has nothing to do with any of this. As Rhonwyn correctly pointed out: “even if [teachers] do believe in karma, most no longer follow this line of reasoning.” And besides, the notion that teachers would fail to take active responsibility for a child’s well-being, is twisting the notion of karma in an entirely erroneous direction. I attribute that to that fact that, as a metaphysical (occult) term, it can generate negativity and even fear.
