Timeline photosViolence in schools is an escalating problem, but arresting students can have long-term effects. "It's removing you from your family, from your peers, and putting you in a category. That's going to continue to perpetuate that identity, and it's going to be more harmful for you coming out," says Sarah Coughlin, who heads up the Charlestown Coalition, a program of the MGH Center for Community Health Improvement.

As WBZ | CBS Boston's I-Team reports, the Charlestown Coalition works to keep kids away from the criminal courts. Instead, the coalition has created youth groups, like Turn It Around, to get adolescents involved in their community.
