Although many schools don’t do anything about graffiti, in other people’s opinion, it should be banned. Doing this can be appealing for many kids.

There is an argument for the status of graffiti as an art form. In the point of view, graffiti has nothing to do with the destruction of property or willingness to commit crimes, but with the want and the need to create something new that everyone can see. Those who take this view regard graffiti as “an attempt to beautify or improve public spaces without first obtaining public approval” (Abel). Whilst it is true that graffiti is considered art, by nature of painting and creating, it is also vandalism. Vandalism is a deliberate alteration of public or private
Since the late 1980s, various public and private-sector actors in the United States who do not write graffiti have practiced anonymity and sought fame to suppress and promote graffiti. Most non-writing public-sector actors have cracked down on graffiti as a criminal act that blights urban surfaces, while, in response, many non-writing private-sector actors have promoted graffiti as a profitable consumer good and art form. In the public sector, police officers and politicians in New York and then Chicago and Denver have prosecuted graffiti as the illegal vandalism of property walls and other surfaces; over time, police officers have learned to adapt plainclothes dress to patrol environments, capture writers, and destroy graffiti. In the private
Graffiti is a big problem in our generation. It’s everywhere, on streets, bathrooms, and most importantly schools. When I walk around my school I want it to look clean and well furnished, I don’t want to see the school riddled with big amounts of graffiti. In this essay I

You're walking down the street and looking around at all the unbelievable graffiti art all over the walls, then realize that people are getting fined and prosecuted for doing it. People of the DPM crew in London were creating amazing art on a lot of regular walls to make a walk down the street more enjoyable, but then they were put in jail for 11 years because of it, and they had to pay 1.3 million dollars for graffiti related damages (Cathcart-Keays). There should not be laws for graffiti, because it can represent a lot more than just a drawing, and it doesn’t affect anyone in a bad way.
Graffiti is a excellent way to let out creativity, with a meaning everyone can relate to. For example, “Graffiti can turn a boring old brick wall into a piece of art as a result; graffiti can decorate a community in some peoples’ eyes “ (Cost of Graffiti on Communities). Artists use their imaginations to recreate a dull scene into something amazing. In addition,
Graffiti is a tremendous problem when it is used to deface property. Why do people create graffiti? Gang symbols, are how gangs show territory, just as animals would. City 's that allow gang symbols are supposedly working against the interest of the people and are instead supporting gangs. Some people use graffiti as a way to show their political views.

This is the art of our cities youth. We should step back and let it pour out. ¨Today, many of the same officers support graffiti initiatives for city beautification,¨ (article #5) the same officers that had killed these kids before for their crime, now applaud then for beatification. ¨The growth of graffiti in Brazil, and itś role in changing the status quo, demonstrates the power of art, and itś ability to create dialog.¨ Lu Olivero in Article #5 describes the power of art, how it can change the community and give kids job opportunities and lower crime rates. But most of all it brings in color to the dark areas where color is needed, like what the school did in the video we watched. By using Graffiti, color is introduced to the places where it can make the most
Graffiti is never a good idea. It’s especially a bad idea if it's done in a school, and it involves a friend. In my old elementary school, there were two different levels of grades in one building. Kindergarten to third grade was called lower elementary and fourth to sixth grade
let's start with kids in the hall get pushed and shoved and i'm glad i haven't seen it but i do think that if you look you can see the same things happening that led to the Article about superglue being poured on a student’s head and i hope if that does happen you will take the right steps so i do propose that if a student is doing these thing often then you can have a teacher and or officer walk with them to class now if that does not work you may have to go one step further and keep them in one class and have one teacher that can teach them all the would need to
