School Violence

By: Hailey Meyer

How does school violence start?

Nearly everyone has either witnessed or has been directly involved in a school fight. Suddenly the hallway is abused with excitement, students start to shuffle for a good spot to view the action, and someone yells "fight!" Fighting is an unfortunate reality in many schools.

What I think about school fights.

School fighting happens a lot and just recently I was in a school fight here at Norfolk High School. I don't think fights in general are good but when you get punched in the mouth like I did you just react to it like "bam" you just want to hurt the person who hurt you.

Type's of fights that happen at school

"Stop the fight before it is to late"


People say high school is about getting an education and getting into a good college to succeed in life. Well, to me, high school is about making memories and good times that will last forever.

How it is related to sociology

It has become a method of choice. students with a score to settle are resorting to a code of street-gang behavior that pushes them to fight rather than talk.

Why do people always want to start a fight for no reason?

certain people always seem to want to pick a fight where it's not needed. I've noticed how people belittle other people to make themselves more superior as they speak, while they put down the others because they think thats what they said is stupid just to make themselves seem smart and more clever. I just don't understand why it's in some people's nature to be snide and sarcastic and nitpicking about other people.
