From 2016 to 2019, the number of reported incidents of violence and threats in Oslo schools increased from 1,940 to 4,840 incidents.

Spitting, biting, fights, and threats have become increasingly common, employees in schools in the capital say, the newspaper Dagsavisen writes.

The largest increase has been registered in the category of serious and very serious incidents. At the same time, it turns out that over 90% of the most serious violence occurs in ordinary schools and not in special schools where students with the most severe diagnoses go, according to figures from the Education Agency in Oslo Municipality.

In the period between 2016 and 2020, a total of 17,120 incidents of violence against employees at Oslo schools were reported. 8,107 of these cases were described as “serious” or “very serious.” The most serious cases alone account for just under 2,000 violent incidents, of which 141 cases have been reported to the police.

Lars Roar Frøyland researches trends in violence among young people at the research institute NOVA and Oslo Met. He says there are many indications of a development of increased violence among young people.

“All sources point in the same direction, which indicates that there is talk of a real deterioration of the situation since 2015,” Frøyland told Dagsavisen.

  1. Some kids feel insecure due to plague and immigration (immigrants insecure and insulted, and natives feeling threatened are defensively violent).

  2. NO, robert chadis, there is NO excuse for this … being allowed to continue … whatsoever.

    I remember reading that experiences like these in his inner Oslo schools contributed to the embitterment … and ultimate mass homicide … of the Norwegian 22 July 2011 terrorist.

    The Hammer of God would have fallen on any such mean/violent kids in Miss Drucilla McCormick’s Denkmann Elementary School, Mr. Bergdahl’s Washington Junior High School, let alone former U.S. Army infantry officer and Europe 1944 combat veteran Charles O. Austin’s Rock Island (Illinois) Senior High School.

    As has been happening in England, the schools are where the clan and mafiya gangs start … incidentally grooming unprotected girls into drugs and prostitution. (Rotherham, Newcastle, etc., etc.)

    This horrendous, society-destroying tragedy – directly leading to “incels” – bitter, lonely, alienated young majority culture males then striking out at their society violently in revenge like on 22 July 2011 – is indeed the product of cultures diametrically in conflict with Scandinavian liberal humanitarian values.

    Somebody in power is going to have to get realistic and implement a harsh crackdown … if there is still time … despite ever-ready apologists like robert.

    And who *opened* The Gates of Troy?
