For many years, people have always wondered why America has had a history of violence. It shocks many when people see statistics like over 5 million teens are involved in school bullying, over 11,000 people die from handguns each year, and 1,382,012 violent crimes were committed last year. Some experts have tried to put their finger on the reason for this culture of violence, but the only things they have been able to come up with are theories. School bullying is not an uncommon sighting in schools throughout America. Whether the child is a bully or being bullied, almost 30 percent of children experience bullying. Bullying can include many things such as physical violence, name-calling, threatening, and stealing.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
