Sample of the School Violence Prevention and Intervention Seminar

The School Violence Prevention and Intervention consists of over 70 pages of important information.

There is just a small sample.

During the 2007-08 school year, 7 percent of teachers were threatened with injury by a student from their school.

Between July, 2008 and June, 2009, there were 38 school-associated violent deaths in elementary and secondary schools in the United States. Not all of them were students some of them were school employees!

Violence and bullying occur in all schools at some level. There is no exception. Recognizing the warning signs can make the difference between life or death. Depending on who you ask, up to 75% of households possess some type of firearm in the home and in many areas, obtaining a handgun illegally "on the street" can be very easy. So you may want to ask yourself the question "if a student wants to seek revenge against a bully, how easy would it be for them to use a gun?" Very easy. Can the student get it into the school? Think about how easy it would be, and perhaps the reason for studying school violence will become more clear.
