Violent Behaviors in Rural and Urban Schools
Renfro, Joy; Huebner, Ruth; Callahan, Connie; Ritchey, Becky
Journal of School Violence, v2 n4 p111-122 2003
Despite the fact that many incidents of extreme violence have taken place in rural areas there is still some resistance on the part of rural school administrators to admit that violence is a problem in their schools. This article provides a comparison of rural and urban student and staff self-report of school violence (perpetration, victimization and weapon carrying) and discusses the implications of these findings. (Contains 3 tables.)
