Wilmette, IL (PRWEB) October 12, 2006
President Bush's school violence summit meeting, recent school shootings, video of the school bus fight, or any of the less media attention incidents that have happened in the last week (first grader brings loaded gun to class, student has a Molotov cocktail in school, gun goes off in school bathroom) all need to be addressed. Solutions are offered in the new book, Stopping School Violence, by Derek Randel.
Arming teachers and more metal detectors are plain stupid ideas. It does not take rocket science or over reactions to address what really needs to be done. School violence and bullying needs to be brought out in the open much more then it has been. Bullying will always thrive where bystanders do nothing and where authority is weak.
Every adult needs to become involved in the solution including the parents. The schools need to stop burying their heads in the sand. I'm glad to see it being addressed. Derek Randel is the author of a new book, Stopping School Violence, the complete guide for parents and educators on handling bullying is now available.
Media copies are available by sending an e-mail.
Derek is available for interviews about solutions to this epidemic. This book is solution driven resource book, it is not a novel. To schedule an interview you can reach Derek at 847-853-4308 or by email.
