Newsletter, Spring 2008: School Safety

Opening text: “The issue of gender-based violence in schools has been of long concern to METRAC. Readers may recall that in our last newsletter, we shared brief highlights from our deputation to the School Community Safety Advisory Panel, entitled “Safety Strategies Must Address Sexual Violence”. We also informed readers that the current emphasis on bullying and gender neutral approaches addressing ‘youth violence’ has fallen short by ignoring the specific nature of violence directed at young women and girls, leading to ineffective solutions and the systemic devaluing of girls’ experiences.”
