Challenging Violence in Urban SchoolseBook - 2001
Rich with dialogue, this timely volume considers school violence in its many forms, including gun and weapon usage, assault and harassment, bullying, fighting, suicide, and hate crimes. ""Being Down" studies school violence "comprehensively--linking school ethnography, policy analysis, and urban studies and encompassing city politics, racism, policing, and systemic and economic injustices in its all-too-real portrait of youth violence in American society. In addition to youth violence, the book examines federal policies and court cases that have shaped judicial and punitive responses to violence.
