Schools have long been the sites of behaviour which can be described, literally, as crime. Thefts, assaults, sex offences, vandalism, offensive behaviour and indecent language continue to occur within schools. Teachers and students are both victims and offenders, and various school practices have been developed to maintain order and discipline.
This seminar presents papers on reducing crime in schools. In particular it focuses on school discipline, behaviour management, and conflict resolution.
