Assaults by Students on Teachers at LPHS within the National Norms?

Last Tuesday three more teachers at Logan Park High School in Dunedin were assaulted by a student this brings to five the teacher victims at this school in the last 12 months. And yet again the principal Jane Johnson is downplaying the situation.  The Police in the Otago Daily Times (ODT) front page article of the 17th June described the incident as unusual in Dunedin Schools.  I’m guessing the police officer was not including LPHS in this statement as it seems to becoming common place there.  But the real questions are:

If the teachers aren’t safe at school how safe are the students?

Should we send our youth into unsafe situations in schools?

How could ERO have described the School as having “The strength of relationships and the supportive school culture create a safe and friendly environment for learning and teaching.” In their October 2009 Review? 

What are the BOT doing to improve the situation?

And the best one of all

How is this school able to keep its identity secret in negative articles in the local daily newspaper (ODT).
