Policy Proposal 4
As part of Together to #ENDviolence, experts from across the End Violence community came together to prepare a prioritized set of policy proposals to end violence against children. The result is six game-changing policy proposals, backed by evidence and research on what works to protect children.
The second policy proposal calls for making schools safe, non-violent and inclusive. To do so:
- All governments should ensure that violence prevention and response measures, including removing violence-related barriers to return to school post COVID-19, are part of school reopening plans, particularly for girls and those children most at risk of not returning.
- All governments should commit to and allocate investments for policy and programmes to end violence in and through schools.
- All donors should commit a percentage of education spending to remove violence-related barriers to enable a safe return to school.
