Schoolgirls more violent than boys say teachers

first_imgNZ Herald 8 May 2012Girls are overtaking boys as the biggest bullies in many school playgrounds, reversing thousands of years of male-dominated violence. School counsellors say girls have become more violent in the past 15 years and boys have become less violent, apparently reflecting feminist messages in popular media. The reversal is dramatic. Only five years ago the Youth 2007 survey of 9100 secondary school students found that only 2.9 per cent of girls, compared with 6.8 per cent of boys, admitted to bullying others at least once a week. Last year, 11,000 females of all ages, compared with 38,000 males, were caught by police for violent offences. But Bill Hubbard, a guidance counsellor and now deputy principal at Rosehill College in Papakura, says girls are now physically violent too. read more
