Oddly enough, even though Russia has much more strict gun control than the U.S., their murder rate is more than twice as high.

It may have something to do with the vodka, and the long, dark, cold winters.

Sadly, compared to regular American school massacres, this incident sounds almost civilized.

“school massacres only a US phenomenom”–LOL despite the U.S. having poor academic performance due to minorities and their high dropout rate we still have more students going to school than in Russia—which actually has one of the highest percentage of homeless youths in the world

@McKay,
school up to 16 is compulsory for everyone in Russia, so your statement that more students go to school in USA is stupid and ignorant. And I seen myself what the average US schools are like, they are often full of undisciplined kids who are constantly high on drugs.

I live in Moscow and should say that this is the first such case ever. That guy is definitely suffering some kind of mental disorder.

I find it interesting and rather telling that Putin talked about teaching and providing students with more of the cultural aspects of the country. Something that is also a problem in the United State. We don’t teach enough art, music, etc. in this country as well.

the problem is in inability of teachers to communicate properly with students, to set good example to students, which is not a case in this type of education system, do you know how children are treated by teachers at schools there? teachers are swearing and shouting at students in class, they can call children “stupid”,etc., grab them at shoulders, etc. do you know this? how students communicate with each others??? only few teachers teach students properly and set good example to students!
how can we make judgements without knowing real insights???
