As a retired Georgia teacher, I should remind you that nowadays if students try to settle grievances in a fistfight, they will BOTH be suspended for a mandatory 10 days and BOTH will be arrested and face criminal charges as well as school penalties--even if the fight is off of school premises! A possible unintended consequence of this policy is an escallation of violence. There was an armed police officer in my school on a daily basis. I was glad and felt safer because of this policy.
