Student violence studied

Date Posted: 2001-08-30

On Friday, The Ministry of Education and Science announced the results of a survey on violence by public school students during last year in the vicinity of schools.

The survey showed that the total number of violent cases in the vicinity of schools counted just over 40,000, marking a 10.4 percent increase from the previous year. The survey also found that violence against teachers is increasing indicating that rather than breaking things or using violence against other students, teachers are often targeted. At the same time, bullying cases decreased slightly.

According to the Prefectural Board of Education, school related violence cases decreased in Okinawa to 537, which is 34 less than the previous year. Most cases consist of the violence among junior high school students who fight between schools-centered groups. Those counted 411 cases. Only 15 cases of violence against teachers were reported. Though the bullying decreased in junior high schools and high schools, it increased in Okinawan elementary schools.
