Qualitative Info

According to the 'Information and Vigilance System for School Safety' (SIVIS) survey that collects data on serious incidents in schools, acts of racism, antisemitism and xenophobia constitute only about 0.6 incidents per 1,000 students (the proportion of such acts being slightly higher in colleges). The report of the National Consultative Commission of Human Rights (CNCDH), which summarizes the results of the survey, estimates that the number of incidents has not increased significantly in recent years, and noted that physical violence decreased while verbal abuse is increasing. The perpetrators are overwhelmingly students (90%), and students are the victims in 64% of cases. The reporting rate by student victims of violence also appears slightly higher.
