This document considers school violence by reviewing the school environment, assessing the difficulties and causes of violence, and offering solutions to the problems. One study describes risk factors for aggressive behavior among middle school students and presents steps that can be taken to prevent the development of such behavior. Several presentations from the 1999 Conference on Children, Culture and Violence are summarized. Synopses of other conference presentations and publications are also included. A description is provided of Peaceful Kids ECSEL (Early Childhood Social-Emotional Learning) Program, an outreach program at the Center for Cooperation and Conflict Resolution that introduces skills for constructive conflict resolution to school-age children.
