For many young people, schools provide some shelter from the systemic violence that surrounds them. But schools are not a sanctuary, tucked away from the violence of this society. There is no sanctuary for the poor, only for the rich. The truth is, we live in a society that cannot keep us safe. It is the very conditions of society itself that drives this violence. And as long as these conditions continue, the violence of society will remain.
