Can a teacher punish someone for doing something that they were bullied into doing by another student?

    Yes, because unless there was a gun held to your head, you could have refused to do what you knew was wrong. BUT you should tell someone that you're being bullied. Schools are being held responsible for doing something to stop bullying.

    They may certainly punish you if they don't KNOW you were being bullied. So TELL the teacher you were bullied into doing it. How are they to know otherwise?

    I am a retired teacher. I would say this is a very touchie one.  To get to the bottom of it, i think the teacher, the student, the prinipal and the bullies should all be involved. If you are bullied ( fearing for your life perhaps) into doing something. I don't think you should be punished, but teachers usually have a pretty good idea of how a student usually behaves, and will " bring that to the table". And a student's record follows him thru the years. They ill often look at that and read it to see what kind of tendencies he has. If you are truly being bullied badly, you MUST get someone on your side to help you fight it.

    Yes. A person doesn't have to allow themselves to be bullied. There are things he/she can do.

    If bullying persists, you may need to speak up for yourself. Choose a moment when you are calm, look the bully in the eye, and speak in a firm, level voice. Tell him that you don’t like what he is doing—that it is not funny and that it hurts. Do not resort to insults or challenges.—Proverbs 15:1.
