A Humane Approach to Reducing Violence in Schools.
Curwin, Richard L.
Educational Leadership, v52 n5 p72-75 Feb 1995
Violence against children is increasing; so is random student violence and disruptive behavior in classrooms. Instead of fortifying their gates, schools must teach children alternatives to violence and how to make better choices. A "humane highway" can be constructed by reducing cynicism, welcoming all students, replacing reward- and punishment-based discipline with strong values, and by asking students to contribute their own views about violence.
