It is a way for schools to not be at fault for deciding which side started a fight. The school doesn’t have to solve the issue that lead to that violence but instead pretend that both sides are the problem. If one student is getting bullied and decides to hit back, they get in trouble too but the bullying continues.
It holds no one accountable for these problems. All it does is make the violence continue in other ways.
