"I believe this book clearly extricates the need for strategic crisis management in schools throughout America. Without a doubt, critical incidents and disastrous situations impose upon the learning of students and impact the culture of the community.
The writing is superb and offers magnanimous research data for educators in their quest to develop programs for respective professionals who are given the task of ensuring students feel safe in schools. This information will also assist professionals in higher education as they prepare education candidates for real-life episodes in schools and communities.."
