Social Work, v42 n1 p55-68 Jan 1997
Used a national survey (N=1,200) to explore social workers' perceptions of school violence. Results suggest that solitary incidents did not convince social workers that violence is a serious problem. Perceptions of a serious problem depended on the presence of multiple types of violence and the school's community setting. (RJM)
