    I have helped a few familes with this issue. I have seen petitions dealing with the abuse from coaches in two schools. I think there is a problem but a lot of times the incidents go unreported.

    Ocurre a veces que un profesor o profesora inicia la agresión contra algún niño o niña. Suelen ser profesores muy seductores que ejercen influencia emocional en el grupo. Al poco, el niño señalado -que había sido elegido como víctima por la profesora o profesor-, se convierte en víctima de bullying, al haberlo situado la maestra o el maestro en situación de gran debilidad ante el grupo de niños, de manera reiterada.
    Esto lo he observado personalmente, contra niños extranjeros, pero de una determinada nacionalidad. Soy testigo directo. Daba la coincidencia de que se trataba de alumnos(as) brillantes.
