School lawyers commit lawsuit abuse at a rate far exceeding that of school victims.

Good for Leonel Sanchez for noting the problem of bullying in schools in his recent San Diego Union Tribune article about violence in schools.

Schools won't address this problem because they fear they'd be admitting liability. School boards and superintendents figure they can always get their lawyers to intimidate or bankrupt the victims who sue, or get them to settle for tiny amounts due to the threat of endless litigation.

Am I the only one who finds it ironic that judges in California think they are helping schools by protecting the adults who do a bad job of running schools? Aren't the children the heart of the school? Aren't they the ones the courts should consider first?
