Mexico's Supreme Court has for the first time ordered a school to compensate a child for bullying by classmates, ruling that a teacher encouraged the harassment.

The private school and the teacher have been ordered to pay 550,000 pesos ($36,500) to the family of the 7-year-old for the costs of the trial, tuition for the 2009-10 school year and medical and psychological treatment.
