Violence, sexual assault, racism and drug abuse. These are all problems that schools have to deal with. But are these offenses happening at the rate of the rest of society or is there a “culture of violence” on school and college campuses? If so, how can it be stopped?

That question will be the focus of a panel discussion in Modesto this week called “Ending the Culture of Violence on School and College Campuses." Topics will include crime, high school dropouts, sexual assault, substance abuse, breakdown of the family unit and mental health.

Two of the panelists, Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson and University of the Pacific Vice President for Student Life Patrick Day join us on Insight.
