Reconnecting with Our Children and Keeping Them Safe.
Department of Education, Washington, DC.
This paper addresses the concerns about the violence in U.S. public schools and provides suggestions for preventing school violence by increasing the attention that children with behavioral problems receive. Some strategies for reform are: (1) listen to the problems of children; (2) increase the effectiveness of the programs designed to help children; (3) teach coping and social skills; (4) shift more resources to prevention; (5) learn to identify and help seriously troubled children; (6) develop a model for crisis management; and (7) develop alternative schools.
