Description & Coverage
Description:

Over the past several years, American educational institutions have seen an increase in violence in general, but more specifically, gun violence by students. There have been many theories as to why American schools have become places of fear instead of institutions of learning. Moreover, the root causes of the increased violence that is occurring in our schools must be explored if our society is going to save our greatest resources, our children.

Addressing Violence in the U.S. Public School System discusses how violence has played a significant role within the educational system. Covering key topics such as mental health, bullying, grief, and trauma, this premier reference source is ideal for industry professionals, policymakers, administrators, government officials, researchers, academicians, scholars, practitioners, instructors, and students.
