Romanian Schools, Second Most Dangerous

According to a survey by the World Health Organization, Romania’s schools rank second in the world in terms of violence levels. Seven students out of 10 fear their classmates – a percentage only exceeded by Hungary, whose fear level is 75%. One in five Romanian students have already been subject to violence from their schoolmates.

A painful example of that violence is the latest murder in Craiova, where a high school student was stabbed to death outside the school by another schoolmate, in front of the victim’s friends.

Last year, over 400 students have been indicted for acts of violence. Over 80 percent of them were ethnic Romanians and only 10 percent were ethnic Gipsies – despite the perception that Gipsy students are responsible for the most school lawlessness.
