Synopsis

Jonesboro, Arkansas; West Paducah, Kentucky; Springfield, Oregon; and Littleton, Colorado, are just a few of the increasing number of American towns and cities that have experienced the horror of school violence inflicted by students. The state of violence in American schools today and methods for making and keeping schools safer places are the topics of this book. Chapter One presents statistics and information on court cases, general statutes, and due process as they relate to school violence. Chapter Two discusses characteristics of children with violent tendencies and includes profiles of potentially dangerous children. Chapter Three concentrates on school prevention and intervention, highlighting effective programs used around the country. Chapter Four addresses parents' roles in curbing youth violence. Chapter Five provides suggestions on how communities can work together to reduce the crime rate and keep schools safe.

Anne G. Garrett has been a public school administrator for 30 years and is currently Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction of Haywood County Schools, North Carolina. She lives in Clyde, North Carolina.
