Violence among America's youth, both in schools and in their surrounding communities, has become a serious concern as a public health issue with physical, economic, social, and psychological consequences (Cooper, Faccia, Hepworth, & Lutenbacher, 2003). School districts are now required to provide safe learning environments under the guidelines of the NCLB (Greenberg, 2004). The programs available to assist school districts in combating this aggressive behavior can be costly and often times ineffective for long term results.
The purpose of this qualitative mega-analysis is threefold. The first purpose is to identify the intervention methods used most often as prevention and/or repair strategies for aggressive behavior among school-age students by analyzing prior quantitative research on the topic. The second purpose is to create a qualitative mega-analysis of behavior intervention strategies that is easier to understand for teachers and school districts while adding to current research in the field. The third and final purpose is to help schools minimize costs and give them the tools needed to identify their greatest school and/or district need, detect common situations, and solve their own problems.
