Violence and Vandalism in Public Education: Problems and Prospects.
Ban, John R.; Ciminillo, Lewis M.
This book was written to present an overview of school violence and vandalism and pulls together in one format many of the diverse elements allied with school violence. A blueprint for action that schools can follow as they pursue measures of crime prevention and control is supplied. The first chapters review the crises of crime and violence in America and in the schools, focus on the rising issue of school security, and examine those strategies employed by the schools in providing safe learning environments for students and staff. In chapters 3, 4, and 5 school violence is linked to student discipline, truancy, absenteeism, exclusion from school, dropouts, child abuse, juvenile delinquency, and the juvenile justice system. Chapters 6 and 7 converge on the teacher and administrator as components in the school crime picture meriting special emphases. Chapter 8 outlines what schools can do in terms of designing a comprehensive inservice training program that would equip all school employees with skills and the understanding necessary to combat school violence.
