4. The parents are often bullies, themselves
and teachers know that the system won't back them up if they confront the child and the parents come in breathing fire.

The system itself has to change because the stupid parents sure as hell won't.

It's obvious the system isn't changing just by the fact that the bullies were suspended and not expelled.
