E karanga ana te Kaikōmihana Tamariki ki te kāwanatanga ki te whakarite i ngā ripoata a kura ia tau mo ngā mahi whakaweti, me o rātou tohutohu kaupare i aua mahi.
Hei tā te kaiwhakawā, tā Andrew Becroft, “Ahatia ngā rautaki a ngā kura - e tūkino tonu ana ngā ākonga i ngā ākonga.”
“I know it will all add to the burdens of schools in terms of centralised reporting, but I'd call upon the government to insist that schools annually report on rates of bullying in their schools so we can see whether bullying is increasing or decreasing,” i kī atu a Kaiwhakawā Becroft.
He tohutohu kaupare i te mahi tūkino me ngā rauemi kei te ipurangi o Bullying Free NZ kua hangaia mā ngā kura, ngā poari, ngā mātua me te hapori whānaui.
Mai i te tau iwa tekau mā tahi e whakahaerehia ana e Te Tari Porihimana te kaupapa Kia Kaha i roto i ngā kura.
“The challenge for leaders and community is to be able to recognise when a situation such as these have happened and to deal with them in a timely manner,” i mea atu te Perehitini o Te Uepu o Ngā Tumuaki o Aotearoa, a Whetu Cormick.
“I think the time has come to say that every school must report on what bullying prevention guidelines it has in place,” i kōrero atu a Becroft, “how bullying is measured in the school.”
E ai ki te Minita o Te Tāhuhu Mātauranga a Chris Hipkins ahatia te huhua o ngā hōtaka whakakore i te mahi tūkino a ngā tauira me ngōna hua, he nui noa atu ngā mahi kei te aroaro.
“Sadly it seems that 30 percent use those guidelines,” i kī atu a Becroft. “We need to know for sure that every school has a set of guidelines and that they're working.”
Ko tā Becroft matua rā, me noho tūkino kore ngā kura katoa ināianei, tae atu ki te hapori whānui me ngā whānau kia whakamutu ai i te wairua tūkino i Aotearoa nei.
