Summary
"From the tragic shootings at Columbine to recent deaths of students that stem from bullying, it is apparent that school safety is a critical issue. In addition to students, faculty is also at risk due to exposure to safety issues in the physical work environment. This book presents school safety from a holistic perspective that addresses the spectrum of safety risks to students, faculty, and staff. It addresses the complete spectrum of school safety issues, including both security and environmental safety risks"--
