Ninety assaults on teachers every day

Official figures show that the number of assaults on teachers by pupils between 2012 and 2013 was more than 90 per day. This was an increase compared to the number of assaults in 2011 to 2012. New measures introduced in 2012 by the Department of Education have meant that Head Teachers now have stronger powers to exclude pupils. Boys were three times more likely to be excluded than girls and pupils were four times more likely to be excluded if they received free school meals. Full BBC article.
