Project #87427 - School shootings

Understanding School Violence

School is a place of growth before a person steps into the uncertainties of adulthood. However, for a few individuals school is a stressful, negative environment, which may result in them becoming violent.

 

In terms of student victimization, the United States does not have the highest rate of violence compared with other nations. Although US schools are occasionally sites of horrific attacks, on a day-to-day basis, US public schools appear about as safe (or unsafe) as those in other nations.

 

The impact of widespread coverage of these violent incidents is difficult to measure, but surveys of student and teacher concerns show a pervasive pattern of fear of violence. School violence has been a topic of national concern throughout the past decade as the public has repeatedly witnessed horrifying shooting incidents in US public schools.

 

When studying violence in schools, it is important to consider both offenders and victims. Many studies have found a positive relationship between physical abuse and suicide.

 

In light of these factors, it is important for you to understand the impact of violence in schools on victims, their families, and the public.
