Sign this petition to the United Nations
I believe that every child has the right to attend school without the fear of violence. But right now children around the world face sexual abuse, corporal punishment, and bullying in their schools each day. We must put a stop to this cycle of violence against children and make schools safe places where they can learn without fear.
I urge the United Nations to help end all forms of violence in schools by encouraging every country to:
Please declare that the United Nations supports the right of every child to attend school without the fear of violence.
- Work with non-governmental organizations and governments to establish data-collection systems so we can better understand the severity of violence in schools;
- Work with teachers and education authorities to develop and implement plans of action for achieving violence-free schools; and
- Establish a procedure for children to report violent incidents.
