SCHOOL VIOLENCE 2
Introduction
School violence has caught so much attention of late in the United States especially with
the shooting cases in schools all over the world. This has caused so many people and more
especially parents to be more concerned about the well-being and safety of their children when in
school. Schools are seen as the safest place that parents entrust their children fully to grow and

the school personnel. This has jeopardized an opportunity of students getting an education when
teachers, parents, and student are in constant fears of going to school (Mulhern, Dibble, &
