Ri schools required to teach about dating violence
Calls and emails to the National Teen Dating Violence Hotline went up nearly 600 percent from March of 2007 to March of this year.
And a recent survey shows that even twenty-five percent of 'tweens' say they're experiencing physical violence in their romantic relationships.
A legislative committee is scheduled Wednesday to discuss a bill that would require public school to include information about teen dating violence as part of school curriculum.
However, on that unfortunate day, a 15-year-old student called Billy Prevatte changed this perception forever when he opened fire on teachers at the Maryland Park Junior High School in Prince George's County. He wanted revenge for having been reprimanded by the school authorities.While we still fail to come to terms with such incidents, researches have highlighted the leading causes of school violence. School violence is a form of youth violence that may arise early in life and continue into adulthood if goes unchecked.
