School Violence: A Literature Review.
Newman, E. Jean
In this literature review on school violence, over 4,000 sources were found in government reports, journal articles, editorials, and texts. This review is offered as a reference, with the implication that it represents only a cursory overview of this field of study. The paper begins by quoting articles that define school violence and theories as to why violence is occurring. Youth gangs are looked at by a number of sources. Student perceptions of violence are also highlighted. The influence of the media, profiles of individual cases, and articles on remediation and prevention are all cited. The literature review concludes with a look at system intervention programs targeted at making schools safer. (Contains 110 references.) (Author)
