A Study of the Knowledge and Skills of Teachers on School Safety.
Clark, Karen L.; Blendinger, Jack
The purpose of this study was to determine the knowledge and skills of teachers as they relate to school safety. Survey participants included 130 elementary and secondary school teachers enrolled in the Educational Administration Program at National University in San Diego (California). Areas covered included: knowledge of legal and professional responsibilities with regard to student behavior and school safety; skills for building a safe, positive, and nurturing school climate and for participating in ongoing safe school planning; and knowledge and skill in community involvement, crisis prevention and management, and building an effective relationship between the school and each student's home. Study results suggested that there was no significant difference between the knowledge and skills teachers felt they possessed in one category as opposed to another category noted in the survey. In general, respondents rated themselves "above average" in knowledge and skills in all areas. The survey instrument is appended. (ND)
