Causes For Violence In Schools

Causes for violence in schools can range from petty arguments up to full blown gang warfare.
One thing is certain though and that is that violence does not belong in any school, and that causes for violence in schools must be established and acted upon to prevent needless injuries and sometimes deaths in schools.

Sometimes causes for violence in schools represent an underlying problem that needs to be addressed by teachers, parents and the greater community. For example, could boredom be one of the causes for violence in schools?
In most cases it is because students who are extremely bored in school may resort to violence to release their frustrations. This is thought to be one of the main causes for violence in schools, and if the boredom of students was alleviated, violence in schools could possibly decrease dramatically.

How do we alleviate student boredom therefore reduce the causes for violence in schools?
Firstly, students need to present what they enjoy doing at school. Most students will state that sport is their preferred class (not many will list mathematics as being a favorite!).
Hence, while it is known that sporting activity can greatly stimulate students whilst reducing boredom, we can likely reduce the causes for violence in schools by introducing extra sporting curriculum into school lessons.

In heavily violent or disadvantaged areas, causes for violence in schools are often caused by money, and issues relating to finances such as drug dealing and theft.
These problems extend far greater than just in schools, with the wider community being affected by the actions and violence of school children.
In such causes for violence in schools, it is a responsibility of the parents of violent students to educate their children on appropriate behavior at school.

If resolution of these causes for violence in schools can not be accomplished by the above peaceful means, school counselors and psychologists may be called in to assess and counsel violent and dangerous students in schools.

It is for the greater good of our children and our schools if all the causes for violence in schools are established and eliminated.
