Summary "Safe School Ambassadors is a guide for school administrators, counselors, teachers, parents, and youth organization leaders. It challenges the current "outside-in" thinking that keeping schools safe is accomplished primarily by adults through heightened security and stricter policies. It makes the case for a complementary "inside-out" approach that taps the power of students to change the social norms of a school culture in order to stop bullying and violence."--BOOK JACKET.
