The North Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (NCDJJDP) has created a website to help stop school violence. Finding out positive ways to deal with youth development for ALL youths can help curb some of the horrible violence that happens now. Education is the best knowledge–the best way to help children understand that violence IS NOT the answer to issues in school.
The NCDJJDP has an alternative learning resource page with information about alternative learning, webcasts and resources about wanting to end the violence in schools, and a cafeteria page, dealing with nutrition and healthy eating.
There is a “question of the month” each month in the library which is very interesting to check out, and a parents resources and principals’ office.
The idea behind this website is that if every child can get a good, overall, balanced healthy school meal and school day while being treated fairly and responsibly, perhaps our days of school violence could be put behind us. Wishful thinking perhaps, but one less school violence issue is well worth it, psychologically-wise as well as socially-wise.
