Wide Scope, Questionable Quality: Drug and Violence Prevention Effortsin American Schools. Report on the Study on School Violence and Prevention by Scott Crosse( Book )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This booklet summarizes three reports on drug-use and violence-prevention efforts and school-crime patterns in American schools. The reports are based on findings from the Study on School Violence and Prevention, which investigated the extent of problem behavior in schools. The results indicate that schools in general were safe, but certain schools had significant problems that affected instruction and made some teachers and students feel unsafe. The relatively higher rates of discipline problems in middle schools suggest that greater attention to prevention efforts in middle school may be warranted. Schools should focus on improving prevention activities by strengthening efforts to adopt, retain, or discard programs based on their effectiveness. While fighting did occur and the presence of weapons was not unheard of, the combination of the two was rarely seen in the same school. Theft was much more common than robbery, and while teachers may have been verbally abused, they rarely were attacked or threatened with a weapon. The fear of disorder did not seem to interfere with learning. Schools followed similar discipline procedures, but they varied considerably in how they recorded and used incident data. Schools that recorded high violence differed markedly from other schools in their size, location, and socioeconomic makeup. These violent schools tended to be in urban areas with a high percentage of minority students. (RJM)

A Closer Look at Drug and Violence Prevention Efforts in American Schools: Report on the Study on School Violence and Prevention by David Cantor( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper looks at what schools are doing to promote school safety. It is organized in four areas: (1) extent of problem behavior in schools, including the types of victimization experienced by students and teachers, and how students and teachers perceive the safety of their schools; (2) efforts used by schools to prevent problem behavior and the quality of their implementation; (3) planning processes used by schools and districts for prevention activities and the use of information in doing so; and (4) results of efforts to compare schools that differed on the extent of problem behaviors. The information for the report came from a purposive sample of 40 public schools (20 middle schools and 20 high schools). Researchers collected a combination of quantitative and qualitative information. The results indicate that the vast majority of schools had relatively low levels of serious crime (aggravated assault, weapons violations, and robbery). While fighting did occur and the presence of weapons was not unheard of, the combination of the two was rarely seen in the same school. Theft was much more common than robbery, and while teachers may have been verbally abused, they rarely were attacked or threatened with a weapon. Fear of disorder did not seem to interfere with learning. (Contains 15 references.) (Rjm)

Prevalence and Implementation Fidelity of Research-Based PreventionPrograms in Public Schools. Final Report by Scott Crosse( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report presents descriptive information about the prevalence and quality of implementation of research-based programs from the Study of the Implementation of Research-Based Programs to Prevent Youth Substance Abuse and School Crime. The study found that, while schools reported implementing a large number of prevention programs during the 2004-05 school year, only a small proportion reported implementing programs (approximately 7.8 percent) supported by research evidence that met the methodological standards established by the study. It also estimated that less than one-half of those implementing research-based curriculum prevention programs (approximately 44.3 percent of the estimated 7.8 percent of research-based programs) met minimal standards for fidelity of implementation during the 2004-05 school year. Curriculum programs involve the provision of training or instruction to students. Results from Phase 1 indicate that they account for approximately 97 percent of the research-based prevention programs delivered in schools during the 2004-05 school year. Given the proportion of prevention programs offered in schools that are research-based, the estimated proportion of all curriculum prevention programs that are research-based and well-implemented is approximately 3.5 percent. A variety of factors are associated with the adoption and fidelity of implementation of research-based prevention programs. Main findings include: (1) Information was examined on over 300 programs that were found on existing lists of "promising" or "effective" prevention programs. The study identified 19 school-based prevention programs that demonstrated evidence of effectiveness through this systematic review of literature; (2) a survey collecting data on prevention programs in the nation's public schools found that the 19 research-based programs accounted for an estimated 7.8 percent of the programs implemented during the 2004-05 school year; and (3) Approximately 44.3 percent of the research-based curriculum programs, or just 3.5 percent of all programs implemented in schools, met minimum standards for overall fidelity of implementation based on four program-specific measures. Appended are: (1) Methodology; (2) Summary Report on the research synthesis; and (3) Efforts to Collect Data on Program Funding From School Personnel.
