The number of violent and verbal attacks against teachers in Scottish schools has increased by a record 4.3%, new council figures show.
In the last year there were 4,608 physical attacks on teachers, the equivalent of one every 14 minutes of the school day in 2006/07.
The figures, released under the Freedom of Information Act, showed a total of 7,306 physical and verbal incidents.
Politicians and teaching unions called for greater curbs on unruly pupils.
