According to school violence statistics, school shooting incidents have increased dramatically.
This article contains some statistics on school shootings, a profile of people who have participated in school shootings, and tips on what to do about school violence.
Beginning in the 1970s, school shootings have increased and have affected communities across the nation.
School shooters do not have a single profile, nor a single reason for their attacks, but there are some ways that adults and students can reduce the chances of an attack occurring.
Schools are sometimes just the place where violence happens, such as in drug or gang related attacks, but in some cases they are the place chosen for an attack. Secret Service did a study on incidents of targeted school shootings, and, as of 2000, found 37 such incidents, beginning in 1974, with the number of incidents increasing each decade.
Attackers may target a particular person, a particular group, or the school itself. They report that the odds of a high school teen being killed at school in a school shooting for the previous decade were 1 in one million.
In their study of school shootings, the Secret Service found: There is no single profile that describes the attackers.
They come from a variety of ethnic groups, family situations, social groups at school, and levels of academic achievement.
Many were part of the mainstream social group and had excellent grades.
Sometimes clear communication in discipline takes the written word.
