Violence in Victorian schools escalates as Daniel Andrews looks the other way

Yesterday’s spate of classroom lockdowns and police call-outs in response to shocking violent incidents in schools across Melbourne serve as a warning to Daniel Andrews and his Education Minister.

All Victorian parents should be able to send their children to school with the peace of mind that they will be in a safe and nurturing environment.

However, the recent spike in brawls, assaults and other types of anti-social behaviour in classrooms and playgrounds in Victorian schools have rightly outraged parents.

In Victorian schools in 2018 alone, there was 171 alleged student on student assaults and 27 student on teacher assaults.

Daniel Andrews can’t ignore these alarming rates of violent incidents in Victoria schools any longer.
