Get off the vicious circle

violence in schools

Violence in schools is becoming a big problem, with over 7000 police call outs in the past year. The worst area appeared to be that covered by the Metropolitan police, but differences in how the statistics are recorded means comparisons are difficult.

I think this is a really sad state of affairs really, when did police have to be called to prevent violence in or near schools! I think we’re on a downward spiral currently, the lack of power for teachers to provide discipline, and the increasingly sloping shoulders of parents to take responsibility are all contributing. Hopefully this can be improved before the entire system breaks, I guess time will tell.
