School shootings do receive too much media attention at the expense of other incidents of school violence. Children are beat up and hurt by other children at schools every day. But when there is a shooting with a weapon, no one pays attention to the personal physical violence. No one wants to pay attention to the everyday incidents such as this.
I believe that school shootings receive too much media attention at the expense of other incidents of school violence. While school shootings are a terrible thing, there are other bad things that happen at school. The main one being bullying, which can lead to other kids committing suicide at one point.
I believe it is natural for media to zone in on school shootings because of their status, but I also believe they should cover other incidents of school violence so the public is more aware of these problems. I believe only reporting on one type of incident offers an unbalanced view.
There are few acts of violence that are more heinous than school shootings, especially when very small children are involved. Although other acts of violence in schools are worthy of attention, it's the school shootings that require attention. No child should be placed in the situation of risking his or her life simply by attending a public classroom. First, our society needs to ensure that there are no more school shootings, then other acts of violence can be addressed.
No, the media does not put too much attention on school shootings. In fact, it is important for the public to know the state of the schools. The reason school shootings hit the news is because they are the most extreme examples of violence, and they help put the spotlight on the need for change.
