School Safety, Fall 1991-Fall 1992
This document consists of a year's worth (four issues) of the Journal "School Safety." Each issue is devoted to a specific theme. The fall 1991 issue concerns "overcoming prejudice and hate." The unifying thread woven throughout this issue is the need to provide opportunities for children of diverse backgrounds to be exposed to valid information about one another. The winter 1992 issue responds to the crisis of "drug-exposed babies." With special attention including medical care, creative education, and stable home environments, these children may have a chance. Reports in this issue describe a pilot program that addresses the special needs of children prenatally exposed to drugs, a program for training teachers, and research currently being conducted. The spring 1992 issue is concerned with "reducing drugs, delinquency, and disorder." In 1986, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention initiated a massive longitudinal study on the causes and correlates of delinquency. Principal researchers from the three projects that contributed to the longitudinal study discuss various elements of their research. The fall 1992 issue focuses on the current trends and issues of teacher and staff victimization. Each issue contains 7 to 10 articles, news updates on the theme issue, and the names and addresses of relevant resources. (MLF)
