School Safety Report III: A Sourcebook for Self-Help.
Addelston, Lorraine W.; Chrichlow, Mary L.
The School Safety Committee is concerned with the obligations of schools to educate all children in an environment of moral responsibility and physical safety that will enable each child to realize the promise of America, that is, human rights, dignity, equality, and justice. The problem of school safety will be aggravated by the nation's economic crisis and accompanying increased unemployment. School personnel, community members, law enforcement agencies and the judiciary are in urgent need of strategies to prevent confrontations among themselves and to increase school safety. Suggestions, facts and legal decisions are presented, with the goal of preventing and controlling disruptive pupil behavior in schools. Topics addressed are: (1) building regulations; (2) dress; (3) flag amenities; (4) free press; (5) loco parentis; (6) parents and school safety; (7) police and the school; (8) the principal's role; (9) school regulations vs. juvenile court regulations; (10) search and seizure: (11) suspension; and (12) use of force.
