On December 13, 2013, in Centennial, Colorado, yet another tragic school shooting devastated a community. In the wake of the tragedy that ended the life of student Claire Davis, the public went through their typical round of shock, blame, and demand for better laws and heightened school security. Educator and author Jonathan J. Doll, PhD, on the other hand, set about writing a book that would help schools, districts, and states create a prevention program to diffuse violent thoughts and feelings before they're acted upon. Approaching the problem pragmatically, Ending School Shootings considers the fact that right now there are students in our schools, from elementary on up, who might later commit a violent act. So, what are we doing to identify them, ground them with a sense of positive purpose, encourage their strengths, and teach them nonviolent problem-solving behaviors? This, rather than a stronger police presence, is the key to stemming the flood of violence that is harming our students. Whether you're a teacher, administrator, parent, or concerned community member, this guide presents practical steps that everyone can take to become part of the solution, from the school level to the national level. Note: 100% of proceeds from August 11-September 15, 2015 go to the following two charities: The Arapahoe High School Community Fund, in honor of Claire Davis, and The Alma Stallworth Scholarship Fund in Michigan.
