Surge in sexual harassment of school children blamed on porn inaction

July 2021 | by Evangelical Times

Christian group CARE says the government’s failure to curb children’s access to porn sites has contributed to the shocking increase in sexual harassment in schools.

A devastating report by schools’ regulator Ofsted found that sexual harassment has become ‘normalised’ among school-age children. It found that boys are sharing nude photos and girls are experiencing ‘unwanted touching in corridors’.

James Mildred, Chief Communications Officer at CARE, stated that access to ‘vile’ pornography and a failure by the government to regulate content is partially to blame.

He said, ‘At present, children across the UK can access pornography sites very easily through browsers and social media apps. When they do, they are exposed to a catalogue of vile, degrading, and violent content.

‘Is it any wonder, given this situation, that sexual harassment is so common in our schools?’
