Shootings in schools, almost always by males.

School shootings are shootings carried out in school, typically by angry young men. They are increasing in frequency in the 21st century.

Prevalence

They are particularly common in USA, are almost always carried out by men, which Jackson Katz associates with the "tough guise" culture of violence and insensitivity around masculinity.[1]

John Taylor Gatto underlines the violence of the school institution itself, and addresses the point about the lack of female shooters in his talk Beyond Columbine.[2]

Origins

School shootings have occurred since the mid 19th century when forced schooling was introduced to the USA.
