News in Review School Violence: How Safe Are Our Children? (Story A)

How safe are Canadian schools? How do schools track and report student violence? And just how prevalent is it? A months-long CBC News investigation found that peer-on-peer violence in schools is all too common, and starts as early as elementary school. An absence of reliable statistics and under-reporting prompted CBC News to ask young people directly about their experiences. The groundbreaking national survey questioned 4,000 youth, aged 14 to 21. It probed issues of physical and sexual violence, homophobia and racism. For this edition, News In Review has compiled a two-part documentary incorporating the results of the CBC News investigation on school violence. In Story A, you will hear from students themselves and hear from some parents who are taking school boards to court.
