Violence in the Schools: How To Proactively Prevent and Defuse It. Roadmaps to Success: The Practicing Administrator's Leadership Series.
Curcio, Joan L.; First, Patricia F.
Research has confirmed what educators have long suspected, namely, that violence in schools is increasing. A 1991 Federal Bureau of Investigation report indicated that violent crime involving juveniles from 10 to 17 years old had risen rapidly in the 1980s and continued to do so. This book explores a wide range of areas of violence in schools. The major causes of violence in the school community--both in and out of schools--are identified, and suggestions are offered for dealing with it. Common sense actions are presented to deal with several kinds of violence. Chapter topics include: the present state of violence in schools, student-to-student violence, student-to-teacher violence, teacher-to-student violence, strategies for violence prevention, dealing with a crisis, and advice for school administrators. A list of suggested readings and resources is included. (Contains 24 references.) (JPT)
