Child Abuse: What Teachers in the '90s Know, Think, and Do.
Hinson, Janice; Fossey, Richard
Journal of Education for Students Placed at Risk, v5 n3 p251-66 2000
Investigated elementary teachers' ability to recognize signs of abuse, perceptions of the reporting process, and understanding of liability. Teachers often could not recognize signs of abuse and were confused about reporting procedures. Some chose not to report because they believed child welfare agencies would not help; some were ignorant of laws protecting teachers; and some feared the ramifications of reporting. (SM)
