With this work, we want to warn people that violence and crime are becoming more and more usual in our society. So, we hope that all of you pay attention to this serious problem and start to be more conscious about everything you do.
In the United States, from 1992 through 2003, there was a general decline in the rate at which students ages 12–18 were victims of theft and violent crime at school. Theft and violence that occur at school can lead to a disruptive and threatening environment, physical injury, and emotional stress, all of which can be obstacles to student achievement.
The rates for these crimes, from 1992 through 2003, also decreased for the time when students were away from school. In each of the years observed, the rates for serious violent crime were lower when students were at school than when they were away from school.
The rates of violent crime at school, especially serious violent crime, were higher for urban students than for suburban students.
In 2003, a greater percentage of white and black students than Hispanic students were victims of theft at school. A greater percentage of males than females were victims of violent crime at school.
Bullying is a learned behaviour. It is when a person or group tries to hurt or control another person in a harmful way.
In bullying there is a difference in power between those being hurt and those doing the hurting, bullying involves hurtful behaviours that are repeated and intentional. Bullying is not about a conflict that needs solution. In bullying, the power is all in one person or a group's control.
There are lots of different kinds of bullying, and they all hurt. - hitting, kicking, pushing, or making someone do something they don’t want to do -calling someone names, or saying bad things behind their back -making someone feel that they’re not important, leaving them out of games
Curiosities Every seven seconds someone in Britain is being bullied. One in five secondary school pupils have experience of bullying. Bullying can happen anywhere; one in four people are bullied at work. Bullying can make you feel depressed, shy, isolated, insecure and even suicidal. Most people who bully have been bullied themselves. In many cases the effects of bullying aren't visible at all. But this doesn't mean they're less hurtful. 20,000 young people got help last year when they spoke out against bullying.
In our opinion, Portugal is becoming more violent, specially in big cities. So, bullying and other types of crimes are being committed in schools more frequently than in the past. That way, we think that it is important to increase the vigilance in schools and other places where these threats may happen.
