Teachers Need Training against Aggression

Sjoerd Slagter, Chairman of the VO-raad, the national umbrella organization of high schools said that “In many schools, there is an authority crisis. Teachers do not know how they have to deal with physical and mental violence from students. Also, aggressive parents cause an increase in tensions in schools. They also undermine the authority of teachers.” The VO-raad therefore started together with the Radboud University a special course for teachers to arm themselves mentally against violence.
