Community

Achieving victory over school violence is fundamental to safeguarding the learning environment for youth. All students have the right to develop in an educational atmosphere where they feel safe and protected. Research has shown that a holistic approach to preventing school violence involving teachers, administrators, parents, community members and students can reduce risk factors. Prevention efforts should be aimed at promoting protective factors to build a culture of peace at multiple levels of influence including individual, relationship, community and societal levels.
