"According to the education act, it is usually just the school principal who can decide on disciplinary measures against students who use violence. The principal are often represented by a lawyer far away from the everyday school life which also bakbinds of a very limited legislation. "
"the Result of this is that violence usually have no consequences for the perpetrator. "
"to illustrate this with an example I can tell you about an incident that took place at my place of work the previous semester. A student in the upper teens had assaulted two different teachers on two different occasions. The school booked a meeting with the parents, but announced no other consequences for the student. "
"The affected teachers are expected to teach the student the day after as if nothing has happened. The other pupils understood this, and conclude that the normal rules do not apply at the school. "
