Teachers Demand “School Police” in Romania

It is the initiative of a Romanian high-school headmaster in the county of Gorj. The mayor of Târgu Jiu is now examining his request for the creation of a special branch in the local police service, one that will tackle school issues exclusively.

This comes after a long series of school violence in Romania, one that culminated with the killing of a 17 years old student in Craiova. Very often, teachers are also the subject of violence and theats from their own students, disgruntled by the low grades they are often given.

All-Out War: Gipsies Clash with Police

For a second night in a row, police special forces fought hundreds of angry Gipsies in Glina, on the outskirts of Bucharest. The angry mob attacked law enforcers with stones, after having blocked several roads. Police retaliated with smoke grenades, tear gas and batons and after hours of tension managed to restore public order.

The Gipsies were angry at the way authorities are handling a case of murder, whose victim was a Gipsy. The murder happened three days ago and the 18 years old victim’s family claims that the culprit is the son of an influential local business man. The victim was killed with an axe and his relatives claim that the suspect has previously commited other serious offences, but was never investigated.

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.
