The Education Minister will be asked about standards of behaviour in Manx schools when the House of Keys sits next week.

The NASUWT union published a report earlier this week claiming over 80% of teachers on the Isle of Man had been verbally abused or threatened with violence by a pupil.

Onchan MHK Julie Edge wants to hear Graham Cregeen's assessment of the behaviour of Manx students in schools.

The Department of Education and Children and a number of other teacher unions have questioned the validity of the study.
