Since ancient times, whether in the East or the West, students' respect for teachers has always been a traditional virtue. In the past era, the beatings and scoldings of teachers and teachers in educating students have been greatly reduced due to regulations. However, once upon a time, there were frequent incidents of students and parents "hitting teachers" on Canadian campuses. To make matters worse, such incidents not only occur when parents beat teachers, but what is even more disappointing is that the vast majority of school violence incidents are caused by students voluntarily beating teachers.
According to a CBC News report on November 9, 2021 , 70 percent popular database of respondents said they had experienced some form of physical violence. Educators in Ontario, Canada, where Toronto is located, face "shockingly high" rates of violence, and the report's respondents are not just a few, but tens of thousands of educators. Research by the University of Ottawa has identified instances of harassment and violence by the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) against campus staff during the 2018-2019 academic year. 89% of respondents experienced threats, attempts or physical violence from one or more sources. Include students, parents, colleagues or administrators from 2018-2019. "In the vast majority of cases, violence is carried out by students," the report said.
The results of such a report subvert the past authority symbols for educators, because the educators participating in this "School Violence" survey include educators at all stages (but not teachers), from early childhood education, youth educators , as well as school employees, etc. In the past, the direct association of "school violence" would have thought that students were victims, but the current violence in the Canadian education system is not only a serious problem of students being bullied, but also the situation of parents and students beating teachers. This also directly shows that the safety of educators in the campus environment has become "unsafe".
