Crime in Educational Environment
Assume that you work for the District Board of Education. The Directors of the Board of education have assigned you to examine crime in K-12 (Kindergarten to 12th grade) settings. You are required to submit a report on crime in the educational environment. In your report:
- Identify and analyze the different crimes for which students are most at risk for in K-12, include some of the differences in victimization found across elementary, middle school, high schools, and college. Provide reasons why you think these crimes occur within the schools.
- Mention at least one crime each that is unique to elementary, middle, and high school. Refer to a case you know of or have read about in the media. Why do you think the crime unique to each school level does not occur at other school levels?
- Assess the various strategies that can be undertaken to reduce crime at elementary, middle, and high school levels. Mention strategies that are specific for each level and that are common to all levels of schooling. Provide reasoning for your answer.
Write a report to the head of the task force assessing the details of your findings.
