Violence Prevention/Anti-Bias Programs
Research from the National School Climate Center has shown that a Positive School Climate is associated with:
- Reduced violence, aggression and harassment
- Reduced bullying behaviors
- Decreased student (and teacher) absenteeism
- Lower suspension rates
- Lower reports of drug use
- Increased self-esteem among students
- Improved academic outcomes
- Narrowing the achievement gap
In order to create a positive school climate, schools need to address social emotional learning from different perspectives. The New Jersey State Bar Foundation provides comprehensive programming that support schools in establishing: 1. Strong conflict resolution and peer mediation programs. 2. Active school climate teams and solid anti-bullying policies. 3. Relevant social and emotional learning and anti-bias programming suitable for differing school populations.
