School Violence Resource Center, University of Arkansas
This report examines recent qualitative and quantitative research to determine how school-related violence was both measured and perceived among various social groups. It reviews sources that addresses such questions as: What is school-related violence? What do statistics reveal about school-related violence? How diverse is public opinion regarding school-related violence? Does statistical data support public perceptions of school-related violence? The primary purpose of this overview is to enhance understanding of school-related violence among educators, students, parents, law enforcement officials, local governments, community service organizations, and community leaders. Conclusions drawn from this research will be vital to the School Violence Resource Center in the design of future research projects, and in the development of curriculum designed to reduce school-related violence.
