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

When your child goes to school, you expect them to be safe. As an exclusive CBC News investigation into school violence reveals, that isn’t always the case. That certainly didn’t happen in Devan Selvey’s case. The 14-year-old boy was stabbed to death outside his school in Hamilton, Ontario in October 2019. He later died in hospital. His mother witnessed the attack and said her son had been bullied for weeks, despite pleas to the school for help. Schools in Ontario are supposed to report incidents of violence, yet many fail to do so. In Devan’s case, questions of accountability remain and parents want action. In this edition, News in Review has compiled a two-part documentary incorporating the results of the CBC News Investigation into school violence. In Story B, we examine the tragic case of Devan Selvey.
