The past decade has repeatedly shown that student violence does t discriminate against any school regardless of wealth, location, size, or resources. However, educators who include prevention and continuous improvement of organizational health in their day-to-day planning will be rewarded with a cohesive school environment that is free of violence. Jared M. Scherz has written this book to raise educators' awareness of a school's organizational health. Healthy schools continually improve every aspect of the working and learning environment. Whether a school needs major reform or strengthening of already effective systems, readers will find sound strategies, including an assessment of existing and suggested prevention programming. This book will expand perspectives, challenge current beliefs, and provide a framework from which improvements can be made. Any teacher, parent, or administrator will find this book useful.
