    enough of something

    New York Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, a Democrat, is penning a bill to end physical punishment in schools saying,“Bullying is enough of a problem among students; the teachers shouldn’t be doing it, too.”
    (From TexMessage: Spankings in Texas schools could come to an end | Texas on the Potomac | a Chron.com blog)
    Is bullying not merely a problem among students but one everyone is fed up with?

    That is not what Ms McCarthy wanted to say.

    May I ask what Ms McCarthy wanted to say, if you don't mind?

    Bullying is enough of a problem among students; the teachers shouldn’t be doing it, too.”

    Bullying among students is in itself as great a problem as anybody should have to deal with. It is not to be tolerated that the problem should be exacerbated by bullying by teachers.
