UK: Toxic masculinity, peer pressure and pornography leading to bad behaviour in the classroom

Article here. Excerpt:

'Karen Nye, county education manager, said: ‘Often trauma manifests itself in bad behaviour, which can lead to abuse, but it’s complex and we have to deal with it at the source – which is with their families.

‘Young people in schools will sometimes behave like that because they want to fit in with their peer group, or impress others.

‘It’s difficult to talk about these children as victims and perpetrators because sometimes they are as young as six or seven years old, but both sides will need our support.’

Councillors on the education advisory panel also noted that young people are being exposed to toxic masculinity, and even violent pornography, at home.'
