"This guide to school violence prevention is designed for educators, parents and law enforcement officials who need a balance of practitioner viewpoints and research to assess best practices. Lassiter (manager, Center for the Prevention of School Violence, North Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice Delinquency Prevention) and Perry, an educational
consultant, address everyday violence in schools such as bullying, harassment and intimidation and highlight the role of support personnel in preventing an escalation into more destructive and tragic incidents. A section also uses firsthand accounts to dispel common myths about school violence." - Reference & Research Book News
