School Violence Among Our Troubled Teens
By Craig Rogers
School violence among troubled teens is escalating at alarming rates with violence being one of the predominate issues of our time. Troubled teens and school violence is an every day thing today. Teens on teen violence, teen on teacher violence, it all happens at levels that we never have seen before. The greatest offenders of violence are the 10th, 11th, and 12th graders. They seem to dominate the violence acts throughout our country's schools.

If the school atmosphere becomes violent then it will affect each and every student, teacher, and administrative staff member. Many students involved in violence are more emotionally immature than the typical teen. Troubled teens show the highest degree of violence, especially when pushed. The major news outlets say that violence has spread in the campus after a single violent incident occurs. When a high rate of violence occurs on the high school campus, the atmosphere of the school becomes fearful. Teenage boys and girls are highly affected by these violence perpetrated by troubled teens.
The students that are abused and neglected in their classrooms are at a high risk to use violent behavior in retaliation. Almost three million teenagers are reported to be abused or neglected each year. Some of the youth protective services provide trained staff to supply training or policy support for protecting the schools regarding violence among teens. These services also provide nutrition information, care and treatment for those teenagers and their parents who need help. They also provide help to the parents of the abused teen by getting parent coaching and support programs that prevent teen boys and girls from being abused.
Violent Behavior Among Teens
Youth that are in high school or above start to wander away from their concern and regard for academics. Some of them are not interested in learning or succeeding. They always try to show their power to others that are less powerful or not interested in participating in violence. These students are found typically in the last seats in the classroom. They are sometimes known as back benchers. These back benchers or troubled boys lead the violent groups and always try to fight and make a disturbance in the classroom, or on the bus or in the street outside school. There are a variety of social and economic factors which are the main factors for violent and aggressive behavior by teenagers and youth at home, in school, and in the community.
