Summary

On June 29, 1993, a Senate Task Force on School Violence hearing was held at the California State capitol. The hearing examined the issues of violence on school campuses. Victims of campus crime, relatives of murdered students, administrators, law enforcers involved in campus safety, and students who themselves committed crimes in school spoke at the hearing. Witnesses at the hearing made a number of recommendations on how to decrease the number of violent incidences on campus. Issues of gang involvement in the rise of campus crime, the effects that growing up in a dysfunctional family have on a child's propensity to become violent, what teachers can do to instill antidrug and anticrime sentiment in students, and why blame for rising crime in suburban schools is being placed on busing were all discussed at the hearing. Witnesses endorsed various security measures to ensure students' safety. A district hearings officer summed up the feelings of most at the hearing, saying that crime in schools is a product of today's society and can only be decreased by large societal changes. (KDP)
