Although the school is a mandatory-my landscapes, not a social space (since there cannot seem to affect what happens «out of this» not to over-value knowledge), seems to cultivate the libido demimonde, success by any means.
However, the school may be grounds for dialogue and management of violence, enough to bridge and not to blow-relationship «family - social environment» and «school» (with the cultural elements in each of these bears and imposes ). The school as part of the problem or neighborhood and vice versa, the school as a broken mirror of failed relationships, but also the degree of integration in the wider school community, tradition, culture of compliance with environmental rules affecting much of what happens in classrooms. Schools take-want / do not want-the «color» neighborhood or city where they operate. The transfer of social violence in school, perhaps the only place where the losers can show its strength and vulnerable to resistance, should not lead us to wrong or generic conclusions. Linking schools with violence on the streets or in the city is not easy, first because the number of dark criminality school is great, secondly because the opportunities are different. However the quality of «crimes» is the same. Noting that reinforces the view that «the same causes create the same effect».
Violence in schools involves power / coercion, deep-rooted contradiction / contrast / conflict and lawlessness. In Greece has entered the culture of the gun. School violence is not armed. Neither extreme violent students are standards. Can students «break for the plate», can the image of violent student to frighten and «terrorize», the public may custodial syndrome (teachers and students) to turn the school in the area of confrontation but this does not change the level and under soft collision. The ability of teachers to manage the heterogeneity of the order and to prevent crises associated with the feeling on the threshold of tolerable and admissibility. Everything is a matter of limits. The antidote to violence is justice and respect (even when necessary to impose fair penalties, but not vindictive penalties). Restorative justice (restorative justice) where «violent» student takes to restore the damage caused, can work if we all believe in the mediation.
