Why Violence Prevention Programs Don't Work--And What Does.
Johnson, David W.; Johnson, Roger T.
Educational Leadership, v52 n5 p63-67 Feb 1995
Some violence prevention programs do not work because they are poorly targeted, provide materials without implementation strategies, apply neighborhood methods to school settings, and project unrealistic notions about the social forces underlying violence. Schools cannot eliminate all conflict but should go beyond violence prevention to create a cooperative context, decrease in-school risk factors, use academic controversy to increase learning, and teach students to resolve conflicts constructively.
