Many Concierges in Schools Physically and Verbally Harassed by Students

One third of the concierges at Dutch schools are confronted with physical aggression. Ninety percent of them encounter verbal aggression. This results from a study by CNV Onderwijs among more than 1,000 people who have a supporting function in middle schools. In the data about physical aggression are included cases of lasting physical damage. Sixty percent of the concierges have been confronted with remarks such as, “you bitch” or “I will bite your head off.” Intimidation and threats are frequent.
