Home v. School: Issues for School Leaders in Reporting Child Abuse.
Wanat, Carolyn L.; And Others
Journal of School Leadership, v4 n2 p223-44 Mar 1994
The education and legal literatures disclose significant disincentives for compliance with mandatory child abuse reporting laws. Although evidence indicates that school personnel understand their legal obligations and recognize signals of child abuse, they consistently underreport abuse occurring in home settings and are seldom held accountable. Recommendations for crafting effective school policies and inservice programs are provided. (Contains 62 references.) (MLH)
