  • Hi everybody, My name is Montrez and I did my senior grad project on school violence.
  • What do you think the definition of School Violence is? The truth is that many people classify School Violence as a shooting or fight, but in reality there are a plethora of aspects that fall into what School Violence really is. One quote that I came across when dealing with problems that have a tough answer is. “A problem well defined is half solved; however one that is not, is destined to linger.” And thats is with School Violence, since it is not well defined, it will be destined to linger.

  • After looking all around for definitions of what School Violence actually is, the one that I believe best defines it is the CPSV in the NC Department of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. They said that School violence is any behavior that violates a school’s educational mission or climate of respect or jeopardizes the intent of the school to be free of aggression against persons or property, drugs, weapons, and disruptions, and disorder. This is a big definition and may be difficult for some to understand.
  • The definition is very complex and hits on a lot of key issues. It tries to capture the idea that school violence takes many forms and is not simply one thing. And that when people define it as just shootings, gangs, or fighting are simply ignorant to the fact that there is a lot more behind it.
  • My thesis is School violence is a more encompassing topic than many people think, including subjects such as bullying, peer pressure, and underage drinking. It is my purpose to bring awareness of these situations to improve the quality of our schools and ultimately eliminate these problems.
  • There are many types of school violence. A few major ones that I see going on in our school as well as schools in our are are as followed. Bullying, Peer Pressure, Underage Drinking, Drug Abuse, Sexual Harassment, and Fights. Throughout this presentation I will be going over all the types as followed and going into detail about each subject.
  • The first form of school violence that I will talk about is bullying. This is something that most if us have come into contact with in our school years. Whether its being the bully or the person being bullied. It is when one person uses their strengths and/or status in order to intimidate or injure another person of a less strength or status. This subject can be broken down into three types. Physical bullying, verbal bullying, and social bullying.
  • Physical bullying is pretty much self explanatory. It is when you physically injure or threat to injure another person who is weaker than you. An example of this is a big kid beating up a kid and taking his or her money everyday. This would be classified as physical bullying since the kid is getting physically hurt.
  • Social bullying is a tricky form of bullying. Not many people are aware that they are actually socially bullying someone. This type of bullying refers to rejection or exclusion in order to humiliate or isolate a certain individual. An example of this is not letting a person sit with your group of friends at lunch as a way to isolate and humiliate them in any way. Some people do this not knowing that they are indeed socially bullying a person, which is why this is a tricky form of bullying.
  • The last form of bullying is called verbal bullying. This type of bullying is referred to as teasing or insulting another person. Name calling and putdowns are also considered verbal bullying. This is more common amongst younger kids. The verbal bullying is more popular in elementary and middle school, and dies out in the higher levels of education.
  • This is a chart that shows the percentage of students bullied at least once a week in grades 6-12. As you can see, the number of kids being bullied have been going down drastically since the year 1999. Another fact that is shown in the chart that the number of students getting bullied decrease as the grades get higher. This could be because as students become more mature, the bullying seems to go away and other things come about.

  • One recent form of bullying that has hit the scene due to the technology is cyber bullying. This is bullying through a computer or other communication device. This type of bullying is the most popular in chat rooms, instant messaging, emails, discussion groups like facebook, myspace, and twitter. and even cell phones. Students go on these things and bully other students.
  • When dealing with cyber bullying, there are two kinds. We have the direct attackers who send messages directly to the victim and proxy attackers who attack using others to help bully the victim. The proxy attacker basically gets other people to do all the dirty work while they sit back and watch.
  • Students use cyber bullying for a number of reasons. Most kids do it as a form of entertainment and want to get laughs out of it. Some people do it out of boredom and simply have too much time on their hands with too much technology. And lastly some are just motivated by anger and they do it for revenge out of frustration.

  • Peer Pressure. This is something that most of us deal with almost regularly. Its when your friends try and persuade you to do something that you dont really want to do. In my research I found that there are two kinds of peer pressure. Good and Bad.
  • The bad peer pressure is when you are being pressured by your friends into doing something that you normally wouldn't do. This can be anything from trying a drug, to skipping a class. For instance, if one of your friends offered you a cigarette, you might say "No, that just doesn't interest me." But being able to say no may not be the problem; the real problem arises when your friends repeatedly ask you to do something. This is where you have to be able to say to yourself, "I made a decision and I truly feel that my decision was the correct one", and then be able to express that repeatedly to all of your friends, and have enough respect for yourself to stand up and not give in. This seems like a difficult task, doesn't it? It takes a tremendous amount of will power to be able to stand up to the people that you know, trust, and respect ... your friends.
  • However, just as there is bad peer pressure, good peer pressure exists as well. Although it is not as common as bad peer pressure. Good peer pressure is when you are being pushed to do that you wouldn’t have the courage to do willingly by yourself. It can also be a situation when you friends convince you not to do something bad, that you were not so sure of at first.
  • Harassment can sometimes be associated with bullying. Its a form of bullying that goes on for a long period of time and literally breaks down an individual. This is when the offender mentally breaks down another person by words, conduct, or actions that will annoy another and basically drive him/her crazy. Harassment causes a lot of distress.
  • Another form of harassment is sexual harassment. This is sexual advances or comments that are not wanted and are not appropriate. What some people would say are jokes can be taken as sexual harassment. People do not realize that it is not about what was said, its more about how it was taken by the individual. This is something that happens in the schools as well as when we go into the work force.
  • This chart shows that the number of people who are sexual harassed. Whether it be in the work force, schools or in some other place. The chart shows that students are amongst the highest people that are subjected to sexual harassment. 73% of students, 16% of staff (such as employees), 5% of college professors, and about 6% of others. Basically what this chart shows is that majority of sexual harassment occurs in schools.
  • Underage Drinking. As it has been stated many of times. “Alcohol is the drug of choice among teenagers”. This statement seems to hold true. In this day and age, getting drunk is a choice that many students are making. This decision has many downsides to it, and not much good comes at all. This has been a pretty big problem here at our school this year, and we will forever be known as the class who loves to “party”. I know that a few of us in this room wishes that we could go back and make a better decision regarding underage drinking. Most adults strongly believe that the days of good old clean fun are long gone. Some believe that the only way for us to have fun or a good time is for us to get drunk. As bad as it may sound we all know in the back of our mind that this is somewhat true.
  • Here is a bar graph that shows the drinking patterns of students in grades 8th, 10th, and 12th. As you can see, the higher the grade level, the higher the percentage is for drinking. The highest numbers are those who have drank n the past month. The chart shows that about half of seniors have drank in the past month. The lower percentages start to show up where students were asked if they have been drunk in the past 30 days or have been binge drinking. In this chart “Binge Drinking” is classified as five or more drinks in a row in the past two weeks. 25% of seniors have said they have. Which is one out of every four students. Only about 3% have said that they drink daily. I think this chart is somewhat accurate with under age drinking.
  • Here are a few statistics dealing with drinking in college. It says that 60 precent of women who have got an STD including Aids and Herpes were drink at the time of intercourse. 95 percent of violent crime on campus have been alcohol related. And 90 percent of all reported campus rapes occur when alcohol is being used by either the assailant or the victim.
  • In the beginning of high school, we all try to fit in and find our identities. This is the time when we are experimenting with new things and people. During this time period, when many of us are trying to fit in an find ourselves. Things such as drugs come into play. Curiosity is what gets most teenagers in high school to try something. High school students are not into much of the hardcore drugs like heroin and cocaine. However the more popular ones are marijuana, and different types of pills.
  • This chart shows the percentage of seniors that reported that they could obtain drugs fairly easy. The one drug that was reported to be the easiest to get was marijuana. This would explain why this is the most used drug in high schools today. about 85% of the students reported that they could get marijuana pretty easy and nearly doubled all the other drugs listed.
  • When we look at the reasons that students tend to fight in school, most of the causes are connected to some forms of school violence. A school fight could happen due to a student being bullied, harassed, pressured by peers to do so, or even over drugs and alcohol. Its clear to see that school violence plays a major part in school fights. This year we have had a good number of fights this year. Most of them were caused by one of the forms of school violence.
  • The term school shooting most commonly describes acts committed by either a student or intruders from outside the school. This is a rare event that doesn’t occur that often, but when it does it seems to put the country in a shock. School violence plays a major role in school shootings, which could be why many people classify “School Violence” as a shooting in a school. And when looking at one of the most iconic school shootings in American history, one could see that there was a lot of concepts dealing with “School Violence” that led to that tragedy.
  • The Columbine High School massacre occurred on Tuesday, April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School in Columbine, an unincorporated area of Jefferson County, Colorado, United States, near Denver and Littleton. Two senior students, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, embarked on a massacre, killing 12 students and one teacher. They also injured 21 other students directly, and three people were injured while attempting to escape. Many people are ignorant to what they think the two killers really are. After reading the book “Columbine” by Dave Cullen, I came up with a better understanding of why they did what they did. The book was very powerful and had lots of information. It answered the questions that many people have about the massacre, such as what drove the “killers” .

  • The two students were very different. Eric Harris was born and raised in Wichita Kansas. He was born on April 9th 1981. He was described as sweet-faced and well-spoken. Adults, and even some other kids, described him as "nice." He was seen as manipulative and could persuade people to do things. On the outside eric was a nice looking well spoken teenage kid. But in the inside Harris was cold and homicidal. He wrote in journals about hate and killing others. "Klebold was hurting inside while Harris wanted to hurt people," Fuselier says. Harris was not merely a troubled kid, the psychiatrists say, he was a psychopath

  • Dylan Klebold is the pretty much opposite of Eric Harris. He was born and raised in Lakewood Colorado on September 11th 1981. He and Eric were good friends and could be looked at as a microcosm of the yin-yang. Unlike Eric, Dylan was shy and not really a people person. He wrote a lot in his journals about love. Its safe to say that Eric was a big influence on some of the decisions made because of how manipulative Eric was.

  • Here is a short video about the tragedy of columbine. It may be hard for some to watch due to the graphic sounds and some images.
  • My application component was a little different from other people. Instead of having one big event, I did smaller things throughout the year to try and show progress. In the beginning of the year I attended the first “UM challenge”. Here I presented them information about my SGP and what my purpose was about preventing school violence in our school. hyperlink Another thing that I have been apart of this year is the UMHS Action Team. This is a year long program that targets on making our school district a better place for students. We try to focus on three different components that help make each and every student unique. School, Community, and Home. In this Action Team we think of ways to help strengthen each group in order to make the school a better place. We have meetings about twice a month and we tackle issues that are going on in our school today. One big problem that we had to hit on was underage drinking. We came up with a few good ideas that will decrease the rate of underage drinking. Another thing that I have done was spoke at the “Cyber Ethics Forum” At this forum, I presented a slide show about cyber bullying and using technology for good. I showed them ways to prevent Cyber bullying to decrease the number of incidents dealing with bullying online. Lastly, for “diversity day”, I spent majority of my day in the “Mini UM Challenge” This was a smaller form of the real one. Here we basically talked about subjects such as bullying, peer pressure, and underage drinking. The students who came left with a greater understanding of what the “UM challenge was all about. So basically my application was a year long thing. When this project is over I will still be apart of the “Community of Caring” Homeroom, which I have been in for 4 years. As well as the UMAHS Action Team to help make our school a better place and ultimately free of school violence.
  • This activity is called cross the line. Its pretty much self explanatory, basically I will read off a statement and if it pertains to you I will ask you to cross the line. We will start off with some easy questions and then move on to some more difficult ones.
  • To sum up my presentation, Basically school violence takes on many different forms and should not be classified as one thing. Rather it should be described as many different types of things that make up school violence. In doing this project, it was my goal to spread awareness of all these aspects and ultimately put an end to violence in schools. Thank you for your time and attention.
