Brief Report on the Intersection of Safe Learning Environments and Educational Achievement: A Literature Review

Unfortunately, students in many schools around the world face corporal punishment, sexual and gender-based violence, fighting, bullying, gang-related violence, and cruel and humiliating forms of psychological punishment. Evidence from the United Kingdom indicates that 30 percent of children aged at least 7 years and 20 percent of children aged at least 11 years experience bullying at school (Brown and Taylor, 2008), with a smaller proportion of students experiencing frequent bullying. During the 2009–2010 U.S. school year, 23 percent of public schools reported that bullying occurred among students daily or weekly, and 9 percent reported widespread disorder in the classrooms (Robers et al., 2012).
