Another new campaign launched this week aims to end violence in schools so that children can learn without fear. The campaign, which is called #SafetoLearn has been organised by The Global Partnership to End Violence Against Children and has already led to Sierra Leone’s Minister of Education Alpha O Timbo endorsing the Call to Action and committing to making all schools safe. The Partnership has offered some further reading on the subject, including a UNESCO report called “Behind the numbers: ending school violence and bullying”, and the Partnership’s latest report on corporal punishment around the world.
