School Violence

Claudio Sanchez reports on an FBI report that reviews 18 school shootings by students and discusses characteristics of those students. The agency recommends that schools study the warning signs discovered in those cases. But it also warns against using those items as a profile or checklist by which to evaluate their students. Among other points, the FBI suggests that teachers be aware of students who are obsessed with violence, have access to guns at home, and reflect violence in their writing and artwork.
