Schools can be a place of violence, fear, and anxiety for children and teens of any age. From the issues of bullying, drugs, peer-pressure, fights, and death, children have much to worry over in today's school system. A toxic school can be of any size and in any location not just in inner cities. The right blend of disrespect, anger, and lack of discipline can turn an ordinary school into an unhealthy and dysfunctional environment very quickly. Toxic schools can change.

Interventions can be implemented to set rules and give swift punishment to those who break them. Toxic school systems do not have to exist. Administration, Principals, and School Boards turn a blind eye to students when they should be taking an extremely active role in giving students a safe atmosphere in which to learn. In this paper the many harmful effects a toxic school has on students will be examined. Solutions will be given as a proposal of change.

Not just students but can be also because of the teachers. Student discipline matter is confidential. Teachers cannot easily spread students' stories to other teachers. The teacher will start judging and comparing the student personalities. Teachers also should not do sensitive jokes for instance jokes related to sexual harassment. I have met some new friends that facing this situation- being judged because of old stories, being teased in a very harsh way, and being judged by skin color. They have no courage to come to school because of this toxic situation.

If teachers, parents, and principals work together to create a zero-tolerance policy on all forms of bullying, teasing, violence, and crime in the school with actions to back up their policies, the misconduct will decrease. At the same time implementing new strategies to promote enthusiasm, positive values, and appropriate models of behavior and taking an active role in the lives of students, the student body will respond favorably. Change may take a while, but it will prove effective in creating a safe haven for students to take their first steps into their bright future.
