Abstract


School life is one of the most dynamic aspects of life. In today's society, school life is undergoing many changes and is therefore being labeled as a hectic annex of the societal development and changes. Such changes are often identified as the new social morbidities manifested through violence in all its forms.  School violence is the 'culminating' outcome of the amalgam of the ills of society and their influence on the school system. Violence in schools is a challenging issue to educators and educationists which also negatively affects the educational value transmitted to and acquired by the students.
