It would help you to number your questions, but i'll go with it....
Yes, In many schools it is, but to solve the problem, try to boost school spirit; with pride in your school, you can't destroy or dishonor it.
Yes, graffiti is a problem in the community, and it is very hard to control, you cannot have police officers assigned to make sure that tresspassers do not deface train cars, where would our tax dollars be then.
Depends, writing little notes about the teacher and their sexual preferences on the desk in high school, yes, spray paint on someone else's property, no.
Yes, solution may be same as above.
You would cover up the graffiti, but it would come back, human nature is to supress the people if you are the man, and vice versa with "fight the power"
You may be tempted to do graffiti because of gang status, but many just do it for the shock factor.
Schools in our area do not have large problems with graffiti, I really would not know, sorry.
Most definitely they would benefit with less graffiti, students would have more pride in their school, preventing it, never ending cycle of good,(bound to never happen, however), but it would make learning easier and more fun.
