North Carolina Governor's Office, Raleigh.
Findings of a study conducted by the North Carolina Governor's Task Force on School Violence are presented in this report. A survey of 129 school systems yielded a 100 percent response rate. The data collected indicate that levels of violence increased in 59% of the state's public schools over the past 5 years. A total of 14 Task Force recommendations are made under the following categories: toughen weapon laws; deal with violent students; focus resources on schools; and strengthen the system. Also included are comments and recommendations from public hearings, written recommendations from educators/administrators and community/citizens' groups, and a description of North Carolina programs that address juvenile violence and disciplinary problems.
