This publication is concerned with how to keep schools safe. The spring 2000 issue "Zero Tolerance: Effective Policy or Display of Administrative Machismo?" (James W.

Other articles in the newsletter are "Check Your Free Resources First" (Michael S. Dorn; Karen Franklin; Sonayia Shepherd) and a guest column, "Student Voices: We Must Be Partners" (Jennifer McKay). The summer 2000 issue "Fighting Hate Speech" (James W. Fiscus) discusses hate crime statistics and current trends in hate groups. Other articles include a guest column, "Youth Summits Give Students a Voice" (Nisan Chavkin) and a student column, "Student Voices: Helpful Insults" (Zack Moore). The fall 2000 issue "New Reports Help Schools Assess Threats" (Ira Pollack) discusses two reports, one by the FBI and one a collaboration by the Secret Service and the U.S. Department of Education, which offer help for schools in assessing threats. Other articles include a guest column, "When Death Affects Your School" (Scott Poland) and "Positive Discipline Changes School Climate." Each issue also contains a list of nonprofit and governmental school safety resources, a news and announcements section, and a calendar of events. (BT)
