- Violence in schools is one of the current challenges society must face. Some say arm teachers; others say have more law enforcement on campus. Are these potential solutions of treating the symptom while ignoring the root of the problem? Is there a mental health issue at hand? Analyze the problem of school violence and argue how it should be addressed in contemporary society. Use support in the form of general analysis and from “What Should America Do about Gun Violence”, “Children Killing Children- Just Another Normal Day”, and/ or “Mental Health Services a Defense against School Violence”
