Increase in Sexual Abuse in Dutch Schools

The education inspectorate receives more and more complaints of sexual abuse in Dutch schools.  In the school year 2014-2015 there were 112 complaints, as against 86 one year earlier. Most complaints came from high schools. More than half of the cases concern major sexual harassment including rape, assault and lechery.  One in three complaints concern teachers or other school staff.  The inspectorate calls on schools to establish behavioral codes for teachers, general school staffers, and pupils.
