Violence in school has been coming a problem in education for many years now. School violence happens and comes in many forms. There is bullying, cyber bullying, gun violence, verbal and physical altercations. School bullying happens at any age. It starts as early as pre-school. Some schools report that there are more than one bullying incidents reported each year. Bullying is something that kids do to intimidate other students. They choose their victim and harass them physically and verbally. People who are bullied filled intimidated and embarrassed.
People who bully other people think they are so popular. They feel as though they own the school. They think that everyone needs to bow down to them because they think they did something and that the whole school is afraid of them. Bullying doesn’t stop in school. A lot of adults who have been bullies in school are still bullies as an adult. As a child being bullied you don’t really know what to do. You kind of take every word in and end up being hurt at the end of the day.
Adults may feel hurt but the older you get, you start to ignore and maybe just don’t even care about what other people think about you. Bullying is something that can be very dangerous in a school. A lot of people who are bullied end up taking everything and and just can’t take it anymore so they end up committing suicide. Suicide is something that no student should feel that they need to run too. It is sad that children take their own life because of people who have no care in the world.
School is supposed to be a safe educational environment for students. School needs tougher security to eliminate violence. There are too many incidents happening in the school. If schools had better security, violence and bullying wouldn’t happen so much. There is a lot of things that schools can use to help get them to be a safer school and that is, metal detectors, automatic locked doors, security guards by or close to every door and security guards should be licensed to carry firearms.
Over the years there have been so many school shootings where people are getting into the school with guns killing innocent people. People who come to school for one thing, end up six feet under because a former student decided to take away their lives. For example, There was a school shooting in Columbine high school. Two students Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris killed 13 people and ingured about 24 people.After that they decided to kill themsleves. No school should ever have to go through that. That is why they need tougher security. Because of these school shootings, it has made schools aware and open to up their security. They want their schools to be safe and for something like that to not happen again.
