Bullied boy on The View

Today I watched The View, and cried.  I rarely cry during that show because it’s usually light and funny. But, today, there was a boy who came on as a guest, with his parents and sister.  He had been really badly bullied and beat up at school.  To help him cope and encourage him, The View had invited three famous football players to join him.  It was very touching.  Watch the story, Bullied Penn. boy gets surprise on The View.

What role should schools play in preventing or responding to bullying?  What should teachers do?  What can they do?  And what if the bullying is taking place just a few yards away from the school, where school staff really have no jurisdiction?
