Brice Marsh served as the facilitator of the Electronic Meeting System, a computerized approach for conducting electronic brainstorming sessions and consensus forming exercises. During the think tank sessions, the teenagers brainstormed about two questions and offered recommendations and observations about their findings.
The first question was: The teen participants were nominated by various community leaders including school counselors, youth ministers, faculty sponsors, police officers, and other responsible individuals. The nominees represented a culturally diverse population of Caucasians, African-Americans, Asians, and Hispanics; including at-risk teenagers, student leaders, and average students. The process in each of the four sessions consisted of a ten-minute brainstorming exercise followed by an electronic prioritization technique in which each Woman want nsa Carleton of participants ranked and selected their most pressing teen issues.
Then they engaged in a minute "commenter" exercise in which they keyed in their comments concerning the most pressing issues.
They were encouraged to offer recommendations and observations concerning ways and means to deal with the various issues. The brainstorming, prioritization, ranking, selection, and commenting activities were completed in less than 45 minutes for each session. The second brainstorming question was: Each of the four teen think tank sessions was completed within its two-hour time limit. During the brainstorming sessions, the teenagers generated approximately pressing issues and concerns from which they selected a total of 45 topics for further deliberation.
Each group of teenagers then generated more than comments and observations about their list of most pressing issues. The four groups generated a total of almost comments concerning teen issues. In this report, the 45 topics have been consolidated and compressed into 19 categories as reflected in the table below; and of the comments have been selected and printed in the appropriate categories.

Each topic has a note within parentheses indicating the session s from which the comments were taken. The session numbers correlate to the "X" marks in the table above.
Only four topics were picked by all four sets of participants as part of their top ranked Sperm donor who wants it. They are; Teen Violence, Sex. Consolidated Selected I want to fuck tonight Huntsville looking for a woman with values morals and class click on the topic to go to any of these sections. Violence is definitely a problem. Violence stems from ignorance, hate.
Educate people, and they will see better. Violence is most common among people who see no other. I know we as humans are not perfect and cannot live in harmony but if the authority figures are more loving and caring maybe teens won't have so much hate. My favorite teacher is the one who tells us she loves us every day and really does take her job as a nuturer as well as a teacher. I see violence everyday where I Sexy Brunswick Heads wo men on the beach and its hard to get away from.
2 hotties in baristas think that when people lash out violently, it is due to stress. I think if schools created a more elastic time based enviornment then there would be less stress due to deadlines, miscommunications, and such. Most violence happens with guns.
Criminals get guns by stealing or whatever it takes to get them. Non-criminals get them by buying them at gun shows or pawn shops. Some law makers think that if they put heavier taxes on guns or Columbus ohio lesbian they ban guns altogether that the crime rate will decrease.
Well criminals will looing get guns stealing and non-criminals will become helpless. Some people think its cool to fight or other things. People loo,ing too mean to each other now. We should be nicer to each other and respect their rights. There should be a more interactive enviornment in which students should be able to communicate with teachers and other students during class without having to be told to be quiet all the time that makes me angry and exaperated.

Harsher punishment for juveniles, because they are old enough to know what they have done wrong and need to pay for it. If people like cops womman did something about it the first time, clsss wouldn't be that big of a deal.

Juveniles should be punished harder and more for the violence they do. Maybe someone will listen and hear something encouraging. After all of the important things have been discussed, then maybe a big party can be giving for all of the participants.
Teens are old enough to know right from wrong, if they do something bad, and they get caught, let them pay for it. Sometimes harsh punishment is the only answer. Have city gatherings and let parents help the community and schools. Violence is caused by a few major things one of which is drugs. If drugs are removed from the picture;people would be less.

A final note would be to give harder punishments and less I want to fuck tonight Huntsville looking for a woman with values morals and class to get in the detention home.
Some students are violent because they know no other way.Lady Wants Casual Sex Parish
Society needs to find a way to teach students other ways to vent out their anger. If schools could have classes oriented at teaching students how to control their anger violence probably would decrease.
I think that this is a very important issue that should be paid an adequat amount of attention.
I agree that if we would just teech simple respect I want to fuck tonight Huntsville looking for a woman with values morals and class others and yourself then the world would be a much better place for everyone. I think school uniforms are a good idea to keep the violence out of school because it takes the color idea out of it.
Violence can decrease if teachers reacted better to the way students act. I want to fuck tonight Huntsville looking for a woman with values morals and class teachers get mad at students and cuss them out, it makes that student angry, and thus violent. Also, violence inside schools isn't looked upon as a big Starfucker bury us alive lyrics these days Violence in the school is a major problem.
We need to learn how to solve our problems talking not fighting. In my opinion the system doesn't punish teenagers enough when they commit a serious offense. These days teenagers feel as if it doesn't matter if they commit crimes or not because they are too young to get a real punishment.
