This indicator measures the number of reported incidents of sexual harassment in school in the last 12 months


A significantly low number of reported incidents of sexual harassment does not necessarily reflect a true lack of incidents of sexual harassment; it may actually reflect underreporting of such incidents, which may be indicative of inadequate access to complaint mechanisms and / or inadequate awareness among children of the importance of reporting such incidents
