Today's teaching environment can be a truly dangerous place. Consider the presence of metal detectors, video cameras, police officers, and security staff in many of the nation's schools. These elements illustrate the existence of a real problem. Situations that once could be ended with a stern verbal reprimand now have the potential for erupting into truly dangerous encounters. Cursing, fighting, and disrespect are common cultural facets of even the most well-funded public schools today. This no doubt plays a part in the high turnover rate among new teachers. Nearly fifty percent of all new teachers leave the profession within five years. When asked why they choose to leave, new teachers often cite disrespect and discipline issues as major reasons for their discontent. With proper training and common sense, most classroom problems can be prevented long before they break down into violence. And though a primary goal of schools is to provide a safe environment where children can learn, the violence seen in society does spill into the hallways and classrooms of our schools. Specifically written for school teachers and school personnel, "Self-Defense for Teachers" provides safe and practical solutions to the complex issue of classroom violence.
