Information on bullying in schools will become available online on the website www.schoolinfo.go.kr in November. The Education Ministry on Tuesday said the drive to release all related information is part of the government's efforts to resolve school violence.
The website will provide information for each school, including the number of victims, the number of students who said there are bullies in their school, the number of calls made to the bullying hotline, and preventive education programs for students, teachers and parents. It will also feature measures concerning victims and assailants, and indicate how many cases of bullying the school committee has reviewed.
The government will also conduct another nationwide survey on school violence in August and September to reflect the result on the website.
A ministry spokesperson said that the original plan was to release the result of the first survey on the website in April, but this was postponed because the ministry felt the information needed to be complemented and verified.
