"This is a major revision of Ken Trump's 2 books combining Practical School Security and Classroom Killers into one new book. This new book will provide a well-thought-out, thorough guide to creating and implementing a workable safety and security plan for your school. The author covers all aspects of making (and keeping) a school safe and secure including internal school security, physical security, and the use of drug-sniffing dogs and metal detectors. He provides practical, realistic advice you can use to make your school safer now. Ken Trump believes in a comprehensive and balanced approach to school safety that includes all school personnel, parents and students. He especially recognizes the important roles for support staff such as counselors and psychologists in both crisis prevention and intervention. Ken knows that one of the keys to school safety is creating a climate where close supportive relationships are developed between all school personnel and students. Students themselves must be involved in safety planning as much of school safety is an inside job. There is no substitute for knowing all students and knowing them well. Ken knows that the student who was just bullied and harassed, and who is humiliated or fearful, is not in a state of mind to learn at an optimal level.
