Youth Violence and School Safety Task Force Has Lasting Impact. Research Bulletin.
North Carolina State Dept. of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, Raleigh.
North Carolina's 1999 Governor's Task Force on Youth Violence and School Safety produced a report that generated 10 action items and 6 main recommendations. This research bulletin presents a follow-up to the task force's efforts. It begins by providing background information about the task force and putting its work into context. It then discusses the 10 action items and updates their status. A brief review of the task force's main recommendations follows with an assessment of where the state of North Carolina now stands on these recommendations. The bulletin concludes with suggestions for future actions, which include continued emphasis on educating parents and others about the early warning signs of youth problems; incorporating accountability measures in school-safety plans; and proper training of future teachers and administrators.
