Preventing Violence - Priority Number One

TASA ID: 468

Preventing violence is fast becoming every school administrator's number one priority, or is it? It has become increasingly clear that schools and the culture they create can become a hotbed environment for random acts of violence, crime, and fear. If school managers (principals, assistant principals, counselors, and even school superintendents) fail to recognize and work to alter the present school culture that inadequately prevents bullying, harassment, and intimidation among students and staff, then we will continue to see students act out in the most disturbing ways.

On June 14, 2013, the nation paused to pray and remember the unspeakably horrific shooting, a massacre that claimed 26 lives, on December 14, 2012, at the Sandy Hook Elementary School, in Newtown Connecticut. Legions of the country's experts,  including me, continue to engage in differential diagnoses and soul-searching for answers as to who and what went wrong.
