In October 2008, Plan launched a global campaign to eliminate violence against children in schools – Learn Without Fear. As of August 2010, the campaign is operating in 44 countries. This report summarises the main arguments of the Plan/ODI report “The Economic impact of school violence” (2010) and draws on Plan’s campaign and programme experience of the past two years tackling violence against children in school. Based on research commissioned by Plan this paper outlines the cost implications of violence in schools and the economic arguments for preventing it.
