Document Number: 2575Preventing School Violence: Plenary Papers of the 1999 Conference on Criminal Justice Research and Evaluation Enhancing Policy and Practice - This collection of papers published by the National Institute of Justice examines school-community partnerships, research-based strategies and other promising approaches to preventing school violence. The papers convincingly demonstrate that preventing school violence is not the exclusive preserve of the criminal justice community. The resources of multiple research-based disciplines -- whether their province is human behavior or the workings of the mind or community health -- need to be tapped to find the path to an enduring solution.
