This chapter discusses the context of violence & pathways to understanding the problem of violence. The author believes that any response by schools must place violence in context & realize there are many victims. He offers guidelines for schools operating from this principle. A central plea in the chapter is for teachers & school personnel to have commitment & the will to help students, especially those from inner-city communities, think & use methods other than violence in conflict resolution.
