Proactive Thoughts on Creating Safe Schools.
Perry, Constance M.
School Community Journal, v9 n1 p9-16 Spr-Sum 1999
Reactive measures such as metal detectors, I.D. badges, and zero-tolerance policies can reduce violence, but cultivating order is more effective than imposing it. Building a respectful, caring learning environment by enhancing students' sense of belonging, implementing a comprehensive character-education program, and teaching conflict-resolution strategies will improve school safety.
