Teen Dating Violence

Basically Not One Single Shit is Given About Teen Dating Violence Except In Boston.

A recent study from Ball State University printed in the August issue of Pediatrics indicates just how low of a priority it is: 81.3% of high schools do not have a standard protocol or procedure in place for responding to reports of dating violence. Almost half of the respondents cite a lack of faculty members who have been formally trained on how to respond to such an issue, and 28% admit that compared with these other health issues, the threat of dating violence is “minor.”

This is unacceptable.  According to the CDC one in ten teenagers have experienced some form of violence from a dating partner in the past year.
