"Impacts of a Violence Prevention Program for Middle Schoools: Findings After 3 Years of Implementation"
A study of middle schools that put into place whole-school and curriculum-based violence-prevention programs over the course of three years found there wasn't a significantly different effect on the rates of violence or victimization reported by students.
It focuses on a violence-prevention effort combining two programs: Responding in Peaceful and Positive Ways, or RiPP, a curriculum-based approach; and the Best Behavior program, a whole-school approach.
Commissioned by the Institute of Education Sciences, the experiment involved 40 middle schools, half of which were randomly selected to receive the combined intervention.
