Violence in Schools – On the Rise

Violence in Schools - On the RiseIn the last two years, there has been a significant worldwide increase in the number of assaults against teachers.

In France, a law has been passed whereby children, for their aggressive school behavior, can be punished with up to six months imprisonment. Japan’s prime minister Junichiro Koizumi, appealed to teachers to stop relying on the police, and instead practice combat sports in order to resist the school violence. The Teachers’ Union of Spain appealed to the government to take immediate action in their defense, and participated in a poll, together with 12,000 teachers, which yielded the following results: 15% of teachers have been subjected to violence in schools, 73% are subject to constant insults, and 9% of teachers are afraid to go to work.

In your opinion: Does humanity have an opportunity to understand what is happening and correct this situation?

  1.  A request for Michael Laitman.

    Dear Laitman:

    I think it would be great to add a commentary about how deeply depressed some humans are about living in the world today with some lines about how the future can bring joy and peace to them, specially to the young ones.

    Thanks Already,
