Gangs and schools: interim report, 17/04/08 [E,NI,S,W]
An interim report for NASUWT published ahead of the full report in September. The report suggests that although there is no widespread problem of gang-related activity in schools, where it exists it is of significant concern. Key messages to emerge from the research include: that it is essential to encourage schools with a problem to admit it; prison visits may act as a deterrent to joining gangs. Often the lavish lifestyle young people associate with gang culture appeals to them without truly understanding the potential long-term consequences; promising practice examples (which need more in-depth evaluation) reported by the schools to tackle gang and gang-related issues include - restorative justice models, peace treaties between community leaders, peer mentoring schemes and policies to deal with those excluded from school to prevent their further involvement in undesirable activities.
