Developing a Common Faith and Ethic for School Safety.
Van Patten, James J.; Siegrist, Jerry
School safety is a topic of national debate due to the severity of student violence in the last few years. While the percentage of violent incidences in schools nationwide has decreased, the problem resides in the increased severity of such crimes. Teachers are facing random acts of violence seldom faced in the past. This paper discusses strategies for school administrators in addressing youth behavior problems: psychological profiles of students, suicide prevention strategies, targeting children and parents before behavior turns violent or to drugs, management by wandering around, restorative-justice, parental involvement, restrictive measures, school administration and litigation, sexual harassment, constitutional rights, religion and school dress, special rules for disciplining students with disabilities, conducting a manifestation review, and future trends.
