Illinois State Office of Education, Springfield. Dept. of Planning, Research and Evaluation.
This report, one of two related volumes, is the work of an Illinois task force on school violence and vandalism. It presents the task force's findings regarding the nature and extent of the problem, a summary of its major recommendations to local districts, and recommendations for state-level consideration. The report begins with an analysis of school crime, including costs, victims, and trends. Some local approaches described for dealing with school violence and vandalism include training of administrators, alternative education programs, and parental involvement. One general task force recommendation includes the sponsorship of workshops to provide information on how to handle the problems associated with violence and vandalism. (Author/LD)
