School Safety Choicework guide

Different approaches to school safety will have different benefits and different costs and challenges. This 2005 Citizen ChoiceWork Guide (and video) examines three school communities and the way each addresses this issue: teach students to resolve conflicts peacefully and provide social services to those in need; set behavioral standards with clear consequences and hold students and their parents accountable; and enhance school security, and reinforce this in the community.

Based on decades of research and experience concerning how average citizens think and talk about issues, Public Agenda’s Choicework dialogue materials are designed to help groups and communities talk productively about public problems. Choicework dialogue materials present alternative perspectives on an issue, highlighting the pros, cons and tradeoffs of going down different paths. They use everyday language, not professional jargon, and focus on the kinds of concerns and values that non-experts can readily engage.
