Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Several useful features expand coverage. There is a school crime and violence time line, sample discussion questions for students or study groups, and suggestions for extension activities suitable for classes: film screenings, song-lyric analyses, debates, mock trials, or ways to promote awareness and activism, such as websites, letters to policymakers, forums, community projects, and so on. . . . This set will be of interest to collections serving researchers in high school and up as well as those supporting education professionals taking continuing-education courses. Recommended." - Booklist

"This is an excellent resource on a troubling problem in the education field. Summing Up: Recommended." - Choice
