Violence is an outrageous violation of children's fundamental rights. Education is supposed to unlock children's potential, not condemn them to an uncertain and vulnerable future.
The report shows that:
Violence in schools ruins the one real chance of a better and more prosperous life for many children, and denies the communities and countries of a vital national asset. And all this is going on everyday, everywhere in schools that are supposed to nurture and protect children.
All violence against children is preventable. It does not need to happen.
