    校園暴力,台灣也應該效仿紐西蘭的做法

    不管是台灣、紐西蘭,都會有校園暴力事件,但有時校方為了維護校譽,息事寧人,把事情就壓下來了。往往校長、或董事會有這方面的權力。現在紐西蘭的高中,新政策要求老師直接報警,看樣子是不用看校長的臉色了。

    這應該值得台灣借鏡的地方。

    Teachers told to inform police

    By Kate Shuttleworth 5:30 AM Sunday Feb 26, 2012

    Violence in schools will be reported to police under a strict new regime.

    The secondary schools union has instructed its member teachers to report all serious assaults directly to police from this week.

    President of the union Robin Duff told the Herald on Sunday the national directive would focus on violence against teachers but schools could not prioritise reporting violence against teachers over violence between students.

    Teachers had been expected to accept a level of violence at work that would be unacceptable anywhere else, he said. "Our guide is, would you report it if it happened on the street?"

    Pressure to protect the reputation of a school had put people at risk, he said. "We hope if all schools report serious violence there is less likelihood of individual schools being singled out."

    The tougher line follows an Ombudsman report into horrific assaults where nine junior boys at Hutt Valley High School were chased down, partially stripped, then sexually violated with a screwdriver, scissors and drills by senior students in 2007.

    The report, released last year, recommended compulsory anti-bullying programmes in secondary schools.

    Moana Hawkins - a mother of a 14-year-old Flaxmere College student left with a fractured spine after an attack at school - said schools should go further and report all serious violence to the police.

    Hawkins' daughter, Adriana Kemp, was released from hospital this week after more spinal surgery.

    Mandatory police notification is also backed by Helensville mother Mellissa Anderson - who received diversion after she assaulted teens who allegedly punched and bullied her 13-year-old daughter Summer Anderson.

    Schools were quick to jump to their own defence, she said, and police and schools should work together to report serious violence.

    "There is so much violence happening in schools at the moment that most are unaware of. Had my case not hit the headlines it too would have gone under the radar."

    The assaults on Adriana and Summer had gone unreported by the schools, as had the attack on the nine junior boys at Hutt Valley High School. The Ombudsman's report found guidelines on stand-downs, suspension, exclusion and expulsion were lacking and were normalising a culture of violence.

    The Ministry of Education believed leaving the responsibility with schools was appropriate and that each incident should be treated on a case-by-case basis.
