Planning Assistance Programs to Reduce School Violence and Disruption, and Appendices.
Marvin, Michael; And Others
The central purpose of this project was to provide an information base that the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration (LEAA) can use in planning programs to help school personnel cope more effectively with the problem of violence in their schools. The efforts to provide an information base were organized into four tasks: to determine the nature and extent of the problem of school violence, to determine what efforts are being undertaken in schools to reduce school violence, to determine what kinds of help schools need, and to determine how other federal programs help schools solve specific problems. The federal programs examined are Right to Read, Drug Abuse Education program, the Civil Rights Training and Technical Assistance program, the Dropout Prevention program under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Title VIII, Teacher Corps, and ESEA Title III. The recommended program emphasizes the provision of technical assistance to local agencies by regional staffs of experts. The program would be given overall direction and support at the national level. An extensive bibliography is included in the appendices. (Author/IRT)
