Violence and Education.

Violence is by no means going to stop through education but perhaps some will refrain from performing violent acts so that they can stay in school.  School is a right up the the age of 16 but after that, it is a privelege to stay in. Thus I believe that if one appreciates education the violent instinct can be controlled.

I agree that education can help to keep students from wanting to be violent, but it still doesn't address the systemic problem of students who are forced to live or study in violent environments.
