"I'd like to comment on the fabulous presentation by Mike Knox. His energy and knowledge was transformed to the children in a very positive, exciting manner. The children have basic facts about gangs and the consequences, however it becomes more real and valid when reinforced by a person of his caliber. I would highly recommend his presentation to other students. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to hear his presentation."

One classic example is a school that bans the use of blue or red colored bandanas.  The school wants to prevent gang violence on and around the campus and buys into the “out of sight, out of mind” theory.  In other words, if no bandanas are seen there will be no gangs on campus.  It is convenient for the school administrators but not necessarily conducive to educating the offending child.  Typically, such a ban does nothing to eliminate gangs on campus.
