Violence in schools: Austria on the top in Europe

schoolsNo glory for the Austrian education authority is a story, which was found on the internetsite of the Austrian Broadcasting (ORF).

The Austrian Broadcasting claims that Austria has one of the most violet schools in Europe. The title of the story: “Violence in schools: Austria is on the top in Europe.”

In Vienna 14 percent of the 11-year-old girls, and 20 percent of the 11-year-old boys are victims of aggressions, at least two or three times in a month.

Austrian psychologists demand “more talks” to improve the spiteful situation in the schools of the alpine country. “But expelling a violent pupil from the school is no solution”, says one psychologist. The pupil has to go to another school, and the whole misery starts new.

The Austrian ministry of education promised to think about a new strategy against violence in schools.
