School Violence Survey

All results of this survey remain confidential. The form comes to my email anonymously. Therefore, I will not be able to write you back unless you include your email address.

This survey is being used to help me understand why kids are having problems with anger and violence. Please be as honest as you can so that adults such as myself can have a true understanding of why kids are angry and/or frustrated. Many times adults think they know what kids are thinking. But many times we are wrong. Click on each of your answers or fill in the blank with as much information as you can.
