Summary
  • "The problem of violence in schools has not gone away despite radical reductions in violent crimes throughout the country over the last decade. Students continue to harass, haze, and harm each other in a variety of ways, disrupting classrooms and even whole schools. In the wake of the Columbine massacre, many focused on the worst kind of school violence: deadly assaults with dangerous weapons. But other forms of violence are more common, and can be just as destructive: fighting, sexual abuse, carrying weapons, vandalism, and assorted other crimes that happen behind the closed doors of elementary, middle, and high schools across the country."
  • "In Violence in America's Schools, Thomas provides a foundation for understanding why the violence occurs, for preventing it from happening, and for treating both offenders and victims after it happens. Using scores of case descriptions, he shows readers how the problem of violence and crime in schools is an insidious issue that cannot go untreated. He offers both tested and proposed methods for dealing with a host of violence issues, as well as a guide to planning treatment of the problem and its associated consequences. He answers the questions: What are prominent types of violence in American schools? What conditions contribute to those types of violence? What methods can be applied in an effort to reduce school violence?"--Jacket
