2011 School Climate Technical Assistance Symposium: How Can We Improve School Safety Research?

Suggests future approaches to researching school safety. This article describes the importance of looking at this topic through a number of lenses, including examining school violence in context, understanding the interrelationships among types of violence at school, understanding cross-cultural and within-culture, identifying variability in etiology and prevention of school violence, replicating evidence based practice studies to establish greater external validity, and observing and learning from schools that have independently made marked improvements in school safety.
