News in Review Children in Trouble: Guns in Schools

The occurrence of gun-related violence in schools on both sides of the Canada-U.S. border has once again prompted questions about a "culture of violence" in North American society, which some say has become an integral part of the school community. It is quite normal for schools, as public institutions, to reflect changing values and mores in society as a whole, but increasingly they must also deal with the "acting out" of social ills and aberrant behaviour on their premises. This News in Review report examines the situations in Littleton, Colorado and Taber, Alberta and explores the role of popular culture – teenage culture in particular – in the role of violence in schools.
