Creating Safe Schools for All Students draws on the latest research, law, and expert judgment to offer educators a comprehensive program for designing safe schools. This book provides a set of standards that educators can use to evaluate their schools and then develop practical and systematic plans for ensuring orderly and caring learning environments. It also addresses several theoretical perspectives through which readers can come to understand school safety. Attention is given to the distinction between preventing violence and promoting safety.
