Education Policies and Practices Regarding Child Abuse and Neglect and Recommendations for Policy Development. Education Commission of the States Child Abuse and Neglect Project Report No. 85.
Education Commission of the States, Denver, CO. Child Abuse and Neglect Project.
This report documents the findings and implications of a nationwide assessment of current education policies and practices regarding child abuse. The report offers guidelines to help education policy makers formulate child abuse policies. In line with these two purposes, the body of the report is divided into two main sections. The first deals with various aspects of education's role in child abuse programs: why education should be involved, why its involvement has been limited to date, why this study was conducted and what the findings imply. The second section contains guidelines for policy development--suggestions that policy makers should consider before developing child abuse policies for education groups and institutions. In addition, four appendices are included: a description of the method, scope and selected findings of the study; samples of the study instruments; tabulated findings of the study; and several samples of child abuse policy statements.
