The sad fact is that many youths and children do not feel safe either at school or at home. In recent years, there have been increases in bullying, teacher assault, and student-to-student physical altercations. Nearly every school child has witnessed violence at school firsthand. The search for answers as to why children use violence must be an ongoing conversation that challenges the myths and perceptions around the issue of school and personal violence. Intended for educators and parents, Books, Blackboards, and Bullets focuses on key issues for identification of school shooters and shootings. While explaining factors that increase the likeliness of student violence, Marcel Lebrun introduces many different perspectives that may be effective in working with troubled populations in our schools. He provides many strategies for dealing with difficult or violent youths, empowering educators to act to prevent school shootings. The book also provides checklists and assessment tools for evaluating possible dangers as well as a list of resources that educators can use in their daily work.

Lebrun was recently honored with Distinguished Professor of the Year for 2008.

Review:

A seemingly straightforward guide to reducing school violence. Throughout the book are checklists and words of advice for parents and school officials about preventing and responding to school violence. The book deals not only with school shootings, but also with bullying, gangs, and suicide....The book sums up well...much current thinking on things schools might do to prevent and react to violence.... (Educational Theory)

Dr. Marcel Lebrun has devoted his career to improving the lives of children on the margins of society. His work as a special educator and most recently as an author about suicide risk and school violence has been committed to improving schools and placesoutside schools for all children, especially those who are most at risk of violence to themselves or others. With Books, Blackboards, and Bullets, he describes the problems inherent in school violence in general and school shootings in particular. Not only does he thoroughly describe the issues, he also provides insightful strategies for improving the safety of all our children-both in and out of school. In a very readable style, Dr. Lebrun provides a useful guide for adults interested in protecting theirschools and communities from the horror of school violence.. (Kimberly Williams, Hobart and William Smith Colleges, author of The PEACE Approach to Violence Prevention and Socially Constructed School Violence)
