School Violence in Context

This chapter revisits the original theme that school victimization is a unique, context-bound form of interpersonal violence that should be addressed separately from victimization in other social-developmental contexts. It discusses the implications of the theory and findings to the expansion of theory, policy, practice, and research on school violence. The following topics are discussed in detail: all different manifestations of school violence should be included in theory and research, each should be addressed separately and their interrelationships should be explored. There are similarities and dissimilarities in the structure of school violence between cultural, age, and gender groups. Victimization is influenced by variables in the school and many other external contexts. There are multiple subjective and objective consequences to school violence. Multiple perspectives of school violence should be studied. Finally, the chapter advocates for monitoring studies on school violence that will link school site to the national level.

Keywords:   school violence, ecological theory, culture, gender, age, policy, context, multiple perspectives, monitoring
