    Ball State University released a study of 750 high schools they contacted at random across the country to determine how high schools handle the issue of teen dating violence. Their results indicated that more than 3/4 of high schools appear not to have policies in place to respond to teen dating violence. The study also showed that more than 60% of principals who responded said their faculty and staff have not been provided training in the last two years, and nearly 70% of principals themselves had not been formally trained.  You can find the study HERE and an article summarizing the study HERE.

    What policies do your local schools have in place to prevent or combat teen dating violence?
