Description - Behind the News: School Shootings by Philip Steele
Go behind the headlines to explore the wider background of news stories that are making a major impact across the world. In School Shootings, we look at why these terrible events occur, and what sort of people carry them out. What is the scale of the problem? Are such attacks more common in some parts of the world than others? Have they always taken place, or are they a new phenomenon? And how should we best respond to the fear of them happening again? What actions should be taken and what changes should be made? This book includes quotes from key figures, opinions from all sides of the argument and debate panels that invite readers aged 12+ to discuss the issues that shape our world. Other titles in the Behind the News series: Global Financial Crisis, Hostage Takers, Race and Crime, Uprising in the Middle East and Violence Against Women
