How do I write an introduction on "dress codes in schools"? I intend to use startling statistics of gang-related violence in schools, but I need help starting and then I can follow the flow, thanks.

    What is the most startling statistic? One way to start an introduction is to "grab" the reader with an amazing or disturbing fact.

    That's exactly what I need, I don't know where to start.

    Mel -- haven't you done any research yet?

    You can't write an introduction without knowing what you're going to say in the body of the paper.

    Google gang violence schools.

    Tuesday, April 20, 1999 the state of Colorado woke up to one of the largest, most violent mass-slaying of students in school in our country’s history. Two 18 year old boys, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold started shooting and spreading bombs all over the school. Their senseless act of violence left 15 dead: 12 students, one teacher, the two perpetrators committed suicide and many more were injured.
    Investigations revealed that the two boys belonged to a gang and were picked on by other students because of their apparel and grooming. This tragedy may have been avoided if the school had a dress code. While there may be opposition from students and parents, dress codes should be enforced in schools as they encourage discipline among students.

    First of all, the topic of Columbine is well-known and not really new news to people. Secondly, the year as well the victim totals are incorrect. Finally, linking such a tragedy with such an oversimplified cause as dress codes sounds unreasonable or unlogical.
