Child Abuse Reporting: Teachers' Perceived Deterrents.
Kenny, Maureen C.
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v25 n1 p81-92 Jan 2001
A survey of 197 teachers found 73 percent had never made a report of child abuse. Eleven percent reported instances in which they believed abuse may have occurred but failed to report due to such reasons as fear of making an inaccurate report, feeling that child protective services do not help families, and lacking physical signs of abuse.
