Ending Violence in Schools 101

Free for Public Servants and Policymakers

Violence in schools affects everyone. It’s proven to have a significant effect on public health, crime, and labour market success, but is too often tackled in a silo. How much do you know about it – and its implications for your policy area?

That’s why we’ve created a 101 on Ending Violence in Schools, where we’ll walk you through innovative strategies to help keep children safe in school, and give you some ideas about how to bring new ways of thinking into your work. Topics include sexual violence, cyberbullying and aggression, corporal punishment, reporting, mindfulness and the use of data for safer schools, among others.

You’ll get:

  • A bite-sized activity or article, each taking 10 minutes or less, for 10 days;
  • A practical introduction to what every public servant should know about crafting policy for safer schools — and how to apply it in your work; and
  • Activities and articles that range from case studies and interviews through to quizzes and reading lists.

You can complete as many or as few as you like, and you’ll have opportunities to connect with peers and experts applying these concepts in government.

Open to all participants from the public service, civil society, and academia. If you are not yet a member of Apolitical, you will be taken to a signup page that will automatically register you for the 101.
