“That he arms himself with courage and that he clings to blows”: Barbosa before ‘bullying’

The governor of Puebla, Miguel Barbosa, said that bullying is a problem that has always existed, and that although the authorities of the schools and families must intervene in front of it, students can also “cling to blows.”
Barbosa spoke about the issue on Tuesday at a press conference, in which he was questioned about a video in which a student of the Benavente School is seen beating another.
“It’s a little bit between students too, that’s not bullying, it’s the same thing about coexistence, that has always existed, nothing more than now there are phones and everything is recorded, everything is recorded. Bullying exists, bullying is moral or physical, psychological harassment,” he said.

“The best recommendation is that (the student) arm himself with courage and that he clings to blows with one of them and that’s when the problem is over. Bullying is also solved by marking the distance between people. So, the school has to intervene, yes, everyone has to intervene, the parents, the students have to become aware of taking care of each other,” he added.

Later, after pointing out that “there are always abusives,” the governor questioned: “Didn’t you ever get caught up in a hat with another colleague of yours? Yes, right? That’s how it happens.”

Barbosa’s statements come despite the fact that various civil organizations urge that the problem of school violence be avoided normalized.
