According to the journal of psychology in students, violence in schools can take many forms, ranging from physical violence to psychological violence. It is often expressed through acts of bullying, intimidation and repression. Violence in schools creates insecurity and fear which harm the general school climate and infringe pupils’ right to learn in a safe, nonthreatening environment.
Following scenarios like that in Luzira Secondary school, the journal recommends general counseling for the rest of the students to detest violent methods of solving problems.
