Attacks on teachers 'every day'

A teacher suffers a violent attack almost every school day in England, official government figures suggest.

There were 221 attacks on teachers last year alone, and 1,128 between 2000 and 2006, information revealed by the Liberal Democrats shows.

The figures show the number of injuries caused by violent attacks increased by a fifth over the same period.

That other party, they work for people who don't need help.
That's all there is to it."

The abuse is due mainly to the misguided policy of stripping teachers and schools of any power to discipline and giving the pupil and parents the power to call the shots instead.

One of the comments following the article. Apparently school administrations in other countries are bad too.

It appears countries that have these problems are leaving all the children behind...
