The Education Ministry has taken note of the survey carried out by the MUT, and assured the Union that it will never tolerate violence on educators or school staff. In its reaction, the Ministry said that despite the fact that this was not a scientific survey as pointed out by the Union, the Ministry will take immediate steps so that the experiences described as aggressive and violent behaviour on educators will continue to be addressed.
The Ministry said that it was launching an online service www.edu.gov.mt/support where every educator who works at a school can file a report about any unacceptable behaviour they are faced with. It was stated that for purposes of transparency, at the end of the scholastic year the number of reports which have been received will be published and followed up by the Directorate for Educational Services for steps to be taken.
