Violence In School - What Should Be Done? Hi, my name is Valerie Randall and I live in a small town. I'm enrolled in a regional high school which four towns attend, grades seven through twelfth. To some, violence in our school is not an issue. Those are the ones who really don't know what is going on.

When most people think of the word "violence" they think of physical violence; weapons, physical violence, and people/animals getting hurt physically or even dying. Yeah that is part of it, but there is definitely a lot more to the word. Like verbal violence, which can be just as harmful and possibly worse.

Violence in a school can be very dangerous, and there is not much that can be done, by "high authorities." One of the best ways to stop violence in our school would be to make students/faculty understand what starts it all from the beginning.

The little stuff that is still considered violence which no one really pays any attention to. Like name-calling, rough housing, or just "fooling around" it all leads to something. One person might not take it offensive, but another might.

I think one way that I could help stop violence in schools, would be to suggest that several eighth graders in each school put on a few little skits. About what leads up to the violence that we don't want in our communities. That is really what I think might help our schools become less violent. To make it a safer place for us as students to live and learn as we grow up.
