Kids are now scared to go to school and their parents are scared to let them. Kids are now skipping school and pretending to be sick; not because they have a test or because they don't like their teacher. They a scared that something might happen to them. In a nation wide survey placed by www.usaweekend.com, 91% have seen kids get picked on, 85% have seen them argue loudly, 74% have seen physical fights, 29% have been threatened physically, 25% have been hit, 14% have been... ... middle of paper ... ... happens at the school in your town, you might not appreciate the extra security measures that are taking place in some schools across America. The truth is the one in every ten kids brought a weapon to school last year, knives, guns, and clubs.
Everyday, 160,000 children miss school because of bullying. If bullying has become the leading reason for suicide among kids years 11-16 , why isn’t it brought up more often? Why aren’t people more concerned? It’s time to bring the topic of bullying into the light.

Loss of contact with friends, schoolmates, neighbors, teachers, and sometimes moving to a new location may bring a lot of psychosocial stress upon the children, and that stress can be very harmful. Since the divorce boom started in the 1960?s, father-mother divorces have increased at an alarming rate. Today more than 1,000,000 kids experience a divorce in the family every year in the United States alone (U.S.A. Today, p. 8). As a result of the divorce, many children live in single-parent homes. This usually results in a drop in income for the family.
Students everyday miss school due to bullying. According to the bullying statistics on NOBullying.com, approximately 280,000 students are physically attacked in school (NObullyin... ... middle of paper ... ...udents spend more of their time at school than anywhere else. Students need assurance of their safety and should feel comfortable talking to teachers and staff about various issues that are concerning to them. The schools are not properly prepared for bullying. The lack of enforcing rules and taking a stand against bullying makes decreasing the statistics much harder.
Schools do not talk about it, parents do not know how to stop it from happening, but so many suffer from it, bullying. Bullying has become the biggest growing issue in the world. So many people go through the day in silence while struggling to not let bullying affect them, but it does. Bullying happens in so many different ways, but no one ever talks about it. Everyday 160,000 people suffer from being bullied at school and half of those people will try to commit suicide because of it (Karmazin).
It isn’t a situation that is addressed much, mainly because people see right through the bullying going on right in front of them. 160,000 students every day refuse to attend school because they have been bullied, whether it be physically or mentally. (“Bullying/Suicide”) To put it another way maybe easier to understand, 15% of absences each day are students that don’t feel safe enough to come to school. (“Centers for”) When a person is getting bullied, they often feel like there must be something wrong with them. The victim is getting called names and told very hurtful things every day and they may begin to believe what is being said, again leading them to feel alone.
Others purposely rock their chairs disturbing the ones who are trying to work quietly. When teachers have to spend half of the morning trying to control and discipline students, they are then too exhausted and mentally tired to teach with the same enthusiasm they had at the beginning of the day. Therefore students miss out on a high quality lesson and instead receive a watered-down version. Another result of their disruptive behavior is low morale. I once saw two third-grade teachers line up their entire class on the playground and scold them for at least ten minutes.
Dylan and Eric both really hated everyone in their school and the court as well after they got caught breaking in to that van that’s when they really started to plan the massacre more and that’s when Harris started he’s journals no one really knows way but they didn’t hate a hand... ... middle of paper ... ...s just to get help students and teachers and once the police tried to go help Sanders he died by he’s wounds. So every since the massacre the government gave 3 billion dollars to schools for a zero talruos for the schools to check on students for any guns or weapons that can hurt students and with that after the columbine massacre the death rate of students went down from 1999 to 2006 only 10 kids had died because of other students so that because of the massacre the schools and government started to check on more students for any problem they have or any thoughts of killing or committing suicide. So that the columbine massacre won’t happen again anywhere in American. The massacre was one of the most kills of students and injuries done by a student in a school in American. So want to avoid any more problems to have parents of kids suffer that kind of pain any more.
Eric was constantly under pressure and anxiety since the early days of grade school. In order to prevent school bullies from talking to Eric on the web, his father and mother decided that it would be best to put a family safety filter on the computer. This filter was designed to keep the computer users off of websites that are potentially malicious and include vulgar language. Even though Eric’s parents set up these filters, it did not do anything to block the bullying that Eric was encountering through his email. A group of school bullies found out what his email was and began to send hate email with malicious content such as: “Go kill yourself loser” and “You are so stupid”.
These unfavorable attitudes in schools are caused by teachers. As stated by Ashraf, et al, “Teacher’s personality has so many dimensions which affects students in grooming their personality and to build up their character.” The research support that teacher’s characteristics are related to students’ attitudes. Surprisingly, The NDPC found that 43.5% of the students who were pushed out of schools in 2006 dropped out due to an absenteeism. Why many students absent repeatedly? Carl Azuz, the anchor of CNN Student News, reported that over half of American students who are regularly absent say that “school is boring.” Students feel bored in classes due to boring teachers.
