The American Federation of Teachers has established a national commission on school violence to "take a close look at the extent of the problem and develop reasoned recommendations" to deal with it, according to the union's president, Albert Shanker.

The new commission will be advised by national experts on the problem, Mr. Shanker said last week, including Oliver Moles, senior research specialist on the National Institute of Education's safe schools project, and Gary Gottfredson, director of the Program on Delinquency and School Environments at the Johns Hopkins University's Center for Social Organization of Schools.
