Fight between schoolgirls

"A disturbing video captures the moment a vicious fight breaks out between two schoolgirls - inside a classroom."

"The brutal brawl is thought to have broken out during an English class at Eastwood High School in the affluent town of Newton Mearns, East Renfrewshire."

"Westwood High School is one of the best performing state schools in Scotland and regularly features in the top 50 rankings for higher exam pass rates."

It would be a good idea to keep this incident in mind the next time a statement like the following is put out in a report:

"Poverty has negative impacts on children’s health, cognitive development, social, emotional and behavioural development and educational outcomes..."
"SEB development is most strongly associated with parental characteristics, especially maternal distress and depression. Any intervention should include parents and children’s home life."
