More students report harassment

More and more students are reporting being harassed at school or experience a lack of support.

During 2013, there were a total of 3575 reports of harassment in schools. This is a 20 percent increase from the previous year, according to the Swedish Schools Inspectorate's annual oversight study released today.

Deficiencies in measures taken to counter harassment are most often the cause of a child reporting harassment, followed by a lack of support. In two out of three reports the student submitting the report is a boy.

The increase is thought to spring from a rising willingness to report harassment, both among students and parents.
