An Examination of School Violence and Safety in South Florida Elementary Schools
Carney, Jamie S.; Shannon, David M.; Murphy, Cindy
Journal of School Violence, v4 n3 p21-35 2005
This study examined conditions of safety and violence in South Florida elementary schools. Although conditions were generally considered safe in these schools, approximately one-half of the elementary school students in the study did express some concerns about their safety, especially in school bathrooms and the area outside of their school building. Students who do not have positive relationships with other students at school and do not feel safe in their community generally feel less safe at school. In addition, students who are experiencing academic difficulty in school and do not expect to attain an education beyond high school feel less safe at school. In this study, those students who felt less safe also tended to be male and from lower SES backgrounds. (Contains 5 tables.)
