Student injury is something that schools can/will unfortunately deal with on a regular basis. It is important that schools have plans in place to prevent the possibility of being liable for student injury. Yell (2016), list the responsibility schools have to avoid liability for student injury • Develop written school district polices regarding care and supervision on students- These can typically be found in your district and schools staff handbooks • Train administrators, teacher, paraprofessionals, and other staff responsible for care and supervision of students- This can be done through building and district wide professional development opportunities • Have the IEP team address potential safety risk for students with disabilities- This can be done though a safety plan. It is also important that will be using confidentiality that IEP teams inform the rest of the school of possible safety risk for the student in the even the student would be around then. When I write plans for kids on how we are going to address different behaviors we see with students in the classroom, I have all preschool paras and both morning and afternoon teachers read the plans, in the event they would have to cover in the class they aren’t normally in.
There are many ways in which they have to comply, and the employer is responsible for the health and safety procedures and these will vary depending of the type of school, but they are required to carry out risk assessments and suitable procedures for any new situation which may increase the risks for example when on a school trip, comply with, complete and allow access to any appropriate paperwork which could be requested during an inspection under the Act, provide a school health and safety policy and ensure that all staff are aware and understand it. It is vitally important that all areas of the school are safe for children. This includes in addition to those mentioned above ensuring that classroom furniture, PE equipment and other specialised equipment such as that used in chemistry etc. as well as playground furniture are in a satisfactory condition in order to avoid any accidents while learning or playing
In one definition of strain Agnew (1992) states it is a “relationship in which others are not treating the individual as he or she would like to be treated” (48). Students who are not treated as they would like while at school often become angry and anger “energizes the individual for action,” which means a criminal response to this strain is likely (Agnew, 2001, 327). A perceived injustice at school that often causes strain on students is bullying. In a study on high profile school shootings researchers found that 71% of shooters had been victims of bullying (Vossekuil et al., 2002). In terms of school related deaths, the offenders were more than twice as likely to have been victims of bullying than other students (Anderson et al., 2001; Glew et al., 2008).
In todays’ schools, students are exposed to violence, trauma, and disasters and schools need to be able to plan ways to prevent and intervene when such event happen. Fortunately, not all school deals with crisis and emergencies, but emergencies can look different among states. For example, there are urban and subrane areas that are expose to natural disasters such as earthquakes or tornados and the emergency plan may look different, because the need is different. Students are effected tremendously due to natural disasters and can suffer from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), as there is a mixture of feeling, insecurity, and instability and these events can impact student’s progress in schools, therefore, school counselors need to be aware

Why Bullies Should Not Be Prosecuted If people ask someone about their childhood memories, stories related to school will also emerge with high probability, because everybody spends a significant part of their lives in these institutions. Since school years are influential, it would be important that children have positive memories about this period, but reality does not always correspond to expectations . Bullying is one of the factors which ruin school experience, and it is gaining prominence. According to Olweus, "A student is being bullied or victimized when he or she is exposed, repeatedly and over time, to negative actions on the part of one or more other students" (Dake 173). As data shows, the number of children affected by such treatment is increasing: 27.8% of them admitted being bullied in
“It’s just that the students were always prepared to take the ACT and now with the change, the school needs to prepare for that.” The test was replaced because the state’s contract with ACT expired last year.

In conclusion This goes back to my reasoning on saying that the strongest cause of minority male incarceration in the U.S is young dropouts because most of the kids , teens , etc that get killed nowadays aren’t educated and involved in
