The Stupid, It Burns

Administration officials at the Zeman Elementary School in Lincoln, Nebraska gave fifth-graders a pamphlet to take home, with nine tips on how to cope with bullies.
Here’s their advice:
Rule #1: Refuse to get mad.
Rule #2: Treat the person who is being mean as if they are trying to help you.
Rule #3: Do not be afraid.
Rule #4: Do not verbally defend yourself.
Rule #5: Do not attack.
Rule #6: If someone physically hurts you, just show you are hurt; do not get angry.
Rule #7: Do not tell on bullies.
Rule #8: Don’t be a sore loser.
Rule #9: Learn to laugh at yourself and not get “hooked” by put-downs.

The sad part, the principle of the school (tho she apologized for the pamphlet) really thought the flyer was well intended...meaning, she didn't have a clue why everyone got so upset over it, which also means, she doesn't have a fucking clue on what's right and wrong...and she's the one in charge over peoples children?
