We Must Reduce School Violence - The focus of American schools these days have so changed from the “basics” of teaching children to read, write and do arithmetic. Instead of just being an academic institution that is entrusted with teaching our children skills that would enable then to be intelligent contributing members of society, the schools are now looked at as “extensions of the community”. Therefore, according to John Dewey, “ schools should share social burdens and be responsible for equipping children with skills necessary to survive and succeed in the community.” Schools have indeed had to modify their roles from teaching content academics to helping all students adjust to changing “radical situations” such as juve...   [tags: School Violence Essays] 643 words
