Undoing the Harm
This concluding chapter offers suggestions for school punishment and security that would be more effective at preventing school crime and misbehavior than the current regime. Such strategies would be strict, but more fair and consistent; they would not include zero-tolerance policies; they would include more rewards for good behavior; they would involve counseling, treatment of students' underlying problems, and conflict resolution; and they would involve students as partners rather than objects of punishment. The chapter also addresses the issue of police in schools, and suggests that on balance, they would best be restricted only to schools with demonstrated crime problems. There are ways that we can better protect children in schools from harm, and one important mission of this book is to discuss these methods.
