Task Force Report on Student Violence & Vandalism.
California School Boards Association, Sacramento.
A task force was appointed by the California School Boards Association to investigate the increase in violence and vandalism and to recommend courses of action. The task force found four changes in society contributing to the increase: (1) the breakdown of the home and family unit, (2) the lack of self-discipline in children and the absence of responsible adult control, (3) the impact of violence on television, and (4) disrespect for the law and lack of effective legal penalties and strict enforcement. This document lists actions that can be taken in each of these areas and identifies successful programs around California sponsored by groups willing to share their ideas with others. The questionnaire sent to school board members and citizens in seven California counties to identify areas of concern and possible remedial action is included as an appendix. (Author/PGD)
