As a former student of the Chicago Public Schools, I personally feel that school violence is a major issue. Most students don’t even feel safe within the walls of the school. Violence in schools can be prevented by taking precautionary measures to ensure that any sight of danger is noticed and the offender is punished. School violence should not be an issue. Student should feel safe in school. Students who feel safe in school perform better in school. It will eventually lead to better test scoores and more funding for our schools. Bullying plays a major part in school violence. As the hit Canadian series Degrassi portrays, school bullying can lead to danger for the bully also. There should be no way for a student to bring a gun to school. Until more precautionary measures are taken, nothing will change. Public school will always be compared to prison.
