Safe Schools, Safe Students. Proceedings of the National Education Goals Panel/National Alliance of Pupil Services Organizations Conference on "Safe Schools, Safe Students: A Collaborative Approach to Achieving Safe, Disciplined, and Drug-free Schools Conducive to Learning" (Washington, D.C., October 28-29, 1994).
Talley, Ronda C., Ed.; Walz, Garry R., Ed.
The "Safe Schools, Safe Students" conference brought together leading researchers and practitioners in order to share knowledge about innovative safety strategies being used in America's schools. The papers here represent the thinking of scientific experts and school-based pupil service providers who are implementing programs to prevent and intervene in issues pertaining to school violence, drug and alcohol use, and discipline. The conference itself was an interorganizational effort designed to highlight the roles of pupil services personnel in addressing one of the National Educational Goals. The proceedings are presented in three parts: (1) Keynote Speakers; (2) Plenary Sessions; and (3) Concurrent Sessions. The three papers in the first section offer an overview of the problem and outline some of the goals for schools. The Plenary Sessions' papers discuss programs and advance specific goals and reforms for making schools safe. The third and largest section features 26 papers on programs and strategies. Many of the articles examine conflict resolution, social skills, the role of families, community practices, ethnic and racial concerns, discipline, suicide, and the influence of drugs and alcohol on school violence. At least 14 model programs are outlined in this section, covering topics ranging from dance therapy to behavior intervention. Appended is information on using and contributing to the ERIC database.
