Disruptive Behaviour in Schools provides a comprehensive analysis of key areas that contribute to disruptive behaviour in schools. As well as exploring successful strategies for promoting learning and good behaviour, Barry Dufour locates the debate within the wider arena, exploring the social and economic context of children, families and schools. He considers the ways in which governments, charities and schools are dealing with the issue and looks at a wide-range of topics, including bullying, truancy, violence, vandalism, exclusion, arson and school security. The author considers major historical and international perspectives, drawing on key research, case studies of good practice and practical examples of effective strategies in order to provide a practical guidance underpinned by rigorous theory. Annotated further reading and links to key websites and organisations are provided throughout to support readers who wish to pursue specific aspects in greater detail.
