Summary

This report describes a study of violence in the schools of Compton, California, by a special team from the National Education Association. The study team examined the economic and social environment of the Compton community and how that environment contributes to an atmosphere of neglect and unrest in the area's schools. The study team also identified a number of other factors that are partially responsible for the recent increase in school violence: the increasing depersonalization of society and social institutions, including the schools; the increasing alienation of youth as a result of national economic and political events; the alienation of students by inflexible and outmoded educational practices; and the belief of many students that violence is a fundamental part of our society. In addition, the report discusses the responsibilities of parents, teachers, school administrators, and students, and suggests ways that each group can help prevent crime and violence in the schools.
