Because idiotic, violent parents breed idiotic, violent children:

Primary school principals want panic buttons linked to police stations installed in every WA public school to combat violence from parents.

The call from the WA Primary Principals’ Association comes as figures from a nationwide survey released today reveal that nearly one in two WA principals had been threatened with violence by parents or students in the past year.

And four in 10 school leaders were the victims of physical attacks, ranging from being kicked or punched while breaking up fights to serious assaults requiring hospital treatment.

The report said perpetrators of violence in primary schools were more likely to be parents but students were the main instigators in high schools.
