Failing at Kindness: Why Fear of Violence Endangers Children.
Perlstein, Daniel
Educational Leadership, v57 n6 p76-79 Mar 2000
Violence-prevention policies stress high-tech security measures and zero tolerance over compassion. Student policing is intensifying, despite declining youth violence, rarity of shootings, and failure of police protection. Suburban youth violence is rooted in masculinity misconceptions and sexual harassment. Education, not retribution, should guide educators' responses. (Contains 15 references.) (MLH)
