Violence in our school
Name: Shweta Ajmera
Violence in schools has become an increasing problem throughout the nation in the last few years. This has caused many problems among students, families, faculty, and residents that populate the surrounding area. School violence is a many-faceted problem, making it difficult for researchers and practitioners to pinpoint its causes. Many school violence statistics, for example, do not match the norms in our larger society. A 2006 study reveals that public schools experiencing violent incidents increased from 71 to 81 percent over a five-year period (1999-2004). The same study reports that the percentage of students who reported gang presence at school increased from 21 percent in 2003 to 24 percent in 2005.

Causes and sources of violence
Violence in Schools is Directly Related to Parenting Violence in schools is a growing problem in all the world today. This affects not only the students, but also their families, the surrounding community and the nation as a whole. There could be many possible causes of students lashing out against their peers. One reason could be their parenting or family life this is the reason that I have the biggest problem with because it can be so easily fixed. I believe that the way someone is brought up at home greatly effects the way a child acts towards the world.
If a child does not receive enough attention at home, he or she might act in such a way at school that will give them attention. Usually, the easiest way is to act badly so they get attention, even if it is negative attention. If parents do not show love or neglect their children the child might act up. I believe that if a child is an outcast at school, it is directly related to the parenting they receive. Most of the kids that cause violence in schools are outcasts with very few friends. Another reason I think parents are to blame for school violence is because parents buy guns. A child could easily obtain a gun if their parents keep one in their own house. This easy access of the weapons encourage them to use it while they are angry.
Access to weapons: School violence exists due to many causes .One causes can be Essay. Many people are selling and buying drug, in this way people are making money to buy weapons
