 'The Simpsons' Enter Brit Schools to Tackle Violence in Kids
Schools in the UK are adding The Simpsons to their timetables in order to cut violence.

At eight Liverpool schools, pupils will be made to watch violent scenes featuring the hit cartoon's Itchy and Scratchy characters who are always trying to hurt each other, reports The Daily Star.

As a part of the Get Real education project, two hundred nine to 11-year-olds will also be given special cards, that show a bottle-wielding yob confronting another youth and girls poking fun at a pupil.

The scheme is run by Support After Murder and Manslaughter (SAMM) Merseyside, with Merseyside police and crime-cutting group Citysafe.

SAMM Merseyside chairman Gaynor Bell, 57, said: "We are trying to get the message across that any action you take has a consequence."
