    There are about 80 million young people in this country. Occasionally one of them does something really, really stupid. Why is this even news?

    In any case, the best way to reduce violence among children is not herd them together against their will into a part-time torture prison you call a "public school"! If all schools are privatized, specialization and self-selection will occur, and more kids will be getting more of what they want out of education and less of what they don't want, like bullying.

    Anectdotal data is insufficient for drawing generalized conclusions.

    Perhaps you were cowering in the bathroom during logic, right?

    Ah perhaps personal experience doesn't count.. when it makes your guy's idea of utopia look bad.

    Who is my guy?

    I based my comments on this thread on data: School Crime Victimization





    Not only are kids safer at school, but schools have gotten consistently safer since 1992.

    All schools should require the wearing of swimsuits at all times, have entirely water-proof school buildings and materials, and provide a varried selection of water guns to their students.

    Additionally, they should have a mandatory 5 min water gun battle between each class.

    Exemptions are allowed if a child has hydrophobia or some such.
    Education.

    Please show some statistics on this...your anecdotal evidence does not cut it.

    I'm surprised you didn't start your post off advocating 6th graders bringing guns to class. I mean by your flawless and rabidly pro-gun logic that would decrease the rampart violence in schools.

    I have to say that just because there is data doesn't mean that its accurate.

    The data also says violent crime, bullying may not be considered violent crime.

    How many of these incidents go unreported because the student fears retribution?
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
