Q&A: Ending school violence for better mental health and learning | #schoolsaftey

What is the context around school violence?

School violence is widespread. It can be physical, psychological or sexual and include gender-based violence, bullying and cyberbullying. 

While schools are meant to be safe and supportive environments for learners and teachers, evidence shows this is not always the case: every year, across the world, one billion children face violence, including in and around schools. 

One in three learners aged 11-15 is bullied at least once every month. Over 36% of learners experience a physical fight with their peers and almost one in three has been physically attacked at least once in a year. One in ten children are affected by cyberbullying. Data on sexual violence in and around schools is limited but there is evidence that it significantly affects learners of all genders.
