The second form of school violence entails random mayhem, where the school is simply the setting (Hill & Hill, 19). An example of the latter form is the sniper shooting that occurred at Walt Whitman High School on October 8, 2002. Both forms of school violence among young people in society are increasing, forcing educators to search desperately for causes. Causes of school violence One cause of this increase in school violence is the fact that society is slowly beginning to redefine violence as normal and acceptable. What is probably most alarming is that violence is becoming so commonplace in many communities and schools that it is considered the norm rather than the exception.

A sense of motivation to fix this problem is evident throughout the country. The amount of school shootings in America is dangerous; the same is true involving juvenile delinquency rates. As this problem greatly impacts the American society, suggested solutions, implementations of new laws/statutes, and comparisons between evidence from these actions will be evaluated to determine the most effective ways to successfully reduce this problem faced by the nation. “Although the violent juvenile crime rate has been decreasing dramatically since 1994, high-profile incidents such as school shootings serve to keep the problem of juvenile violence at the forefront of national attention” (Cox et al. 2013).
The recent rise in school violence are incidents that should not go unnoticed. Recently there have been persistent school shootings and school violence does not only account for school shootings alone. After the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting, there has been a constant rise in such incidents. Parents and teachers these days are more troubled by all the news and reports of school violence that they expect to hear about almost every day. The question now arises that why is there a constant rise in school violence and is there anything we can do to prevent such horrific incidents like the recent stabbing in the Murrysville, Pensylvennia, Franklin Regional High school?
