Diamantes, Thomas – Journal of Instructional Psychology, 2010
School officials have a difficult time dealing with cases of bullying. Often, it is one student's word against another.

Lezra, Esther – Review of Education, Pedagogy & Cultural Studies, 2014
An act of atrocity is an act of violence that is perceived to exceed the boundaries of what a legitimate punitive measure--either against an individual or a collective group of people-would be for retribution for the unjust infliction of an injury.

Silber, John R. – Journal of College Admission, 2012
Academics are all used to the idea that they have special ethical obligations. They may also, as administrators, recognize special administrative ethical obligations. But they do not like to think of themselves as businessmen, concerned with selling, and few of them indeed have thought directly and hard about the ethical constraints on marketing…

Yang, K. Wayne – Language Arts, 2009
This article seeks to restore a counter-narrative of discipline as distinct from punishment. Punishment is retribution for an offense, an exclusionary act by which students are removed from the opportunity to learn. It is harm inflicted by an external agent as a mechanism through which outside regulation becomes internalized subjectivity. Too…

Background: Approximately 10% of U.S. high school-attending youth are physically abused by a dating partner each year.

Conversely, scholarship…

Cliques, smaller clusters within larger peer groups sharing similar views, behaviors, and attitudes, are a means of attaining societal power.

Pass, Susan – Kappa Delta Pi Record, 2007
If the abuse of a child were at the hands of a schoolyard bully or lurking pedophile, parents most likely would applaud intervention. However, precisely because most cases involve an abusive parent, intervention is almost automatically deemed a dicey proposition.
