Violence and Our Schools: What Can We Do?
Landen, Walt
Updating School Board Policies, v23 n1 p1-5 Feb 1992
Many view the problem of violence as not merely a school problem, but as a much larger community problem that is finding its way into the schools. As a society, in addition to teaching our children how to be violent, we are giving them the tools of violence. There are steps that school board members can take to establish and maintain control of violence in schools. The first step is to develop an overall plan for school discipline and safety by collecting information and statistics to define the problem. Citizen advisory groups can be valuable sources of information and support. Areas for attention in developing policies regarding school violence include the curriculum, workshops for adults, extracurricular activities for students, and clearly stated rules and regulations. Examples are cited of school districts' approaches to violence. (MLF)
