1 out of 2 children suffer violence: New WHO Report (18 June 2020)

Children who experienced any form of violence in childhood have a 13% predicted
probability that they will not graduate from school.

Males who are bullied and girls who have experienced sexual violence have an approximately threefold increased risk of being absent from school. Children who are frequently bullied are almost three times more likely to report feeling like an outsider
at school than those who are not, and nearly twice as likely to skip school as non-bullied peers. Children who are bullied also score lower in tests.
