Excerpt
Excerpt: Although school remains one of the safest places for children, recent shootings on school campuses have heightened public concern. The victimization of students by acts of violence is simply intolerable. This issue of Juvenile Justice examines the extent and nature of school violence and reviews promising approaches to creating safe schools and resolving conflicts peacefully. Many factors go into assessing school safety, as Margaret Small and Kellie Dressler Tetrick note in their overview of ?School Violence.? The authors draw on data from the 2000 Annual Report on School Safety and Indicators of School Crime and Safety, 2000 to answer questions such as the following: How much crime is occurring in the Nation?s schools? Are schools more or less safe than in the past? Do students feel safe at school? What kinds of crimes are occurring? Fortunately, communities across America are taking action to reduce school violence. ?Creating Safe Schools? will require a comprehensive approach, such as those described and illustrated by Ira Pollack and Carlos Sundermann of OJJDP?s National Resource Center for Safe Schools. While comprehensive safe school planning will not eliminate all campus violence, if properly conceived and implemented, it will foster a safer environment for students and their teachers. ?Conflict Resolution Education? offers a way of preparing youth for a less violent future?or rather, as Donna Crawford and Richard Bodine point out, it offers four approaches: process curriculum, mediation program, peaceable classroom, and peaceable school. An accompanying sidebar reports on ?Peaceable Schools Tennessee,? a particularly promising example of the last approach.

Table of Contents
FEATURES School Violence: An Overview by Margaret Small and Kellie Dressler Tetrick .............................................................. 3 Although schools have been quite successful in keeping students and staff safe from harm, schools still face serious challenges. It is necessary to understand the nature of these challenges if we are to devise effective strategies to prevent school violence and promote school safety. Creating Safe Schools: A Comprehensive Approach by Ira Pollack and Carlos Sundermann ........................................................................ 13 Schools that understand the complexity of youth violence and the activities needed to prevent it are developing comprehensive safe school plans that require collaboration with the community. Schools that engage in such planning and implement their plans effectively are more likely to foster safe environments for their students and teachers. Conflict Resolution Education: Preparing Youth for the Future by Donna K. Crawford and Richard J. Bodine ............................................................ 21 Physical aggression and intimidation are often a youth?s first response to conflict. Conflict resolution education can contribute to making schools safer and preparing students to participate in society.
