This paper discusses the causes behind the violence in public schools and explains how violent activities affect not only the students and education personnel and disrupt the learning environment, they also pave the way for possible similar incidents.

From the Paper:

"Violent activities in nation's public schools haunt not only the students and teachers but these also disrupt the learning environment of the class in addition to casting gruesome affects in the society as a whole. Like a parasite, these violent thoughts enter into the individuals' minds and then pave the way for any deadly incident to happen. This happens due to numerous reasons including the low-intensity and frequent incidents like bullying, gang fights, sexual assaults, intimidation and personality attacks."
