ClementTasmine_BibAnnotationsIn this paper I plan to argue that, if methods such as corporal punishment andsuspensions are replaced with educational programs and laws that penalize aggressiveindividuals, there will be a decrease in instances of bullying and deaths resulting fromviolent behavior in schools. This topic is interesting to me because I want to preventviolence in schools so that no one especially, anyone I know is the victim or perpetrator of violent crimes. Many people have been hurt, some have gone to the extent of committingsuicide, and others have ruined their lives by being involved in situations that could easily be solved by discussing the problem with each other or an adult or by finding a successfulway to leave a negative situation.American Civil Liberties Union and Human Rights Watch.
 Impairing Education: Corporal  Punishment of Students with Disabilities in US Public Schools.
New York, NY:Human Rights Watch, 2009. Print.These two organizations published this book to bring to light the disproportionatelyhigh rates of instances of corporal punishment that disabled students receive in US publicschools to federal and state governments so that corporal punishment will be banned andreplaced with alternative forms of discipline. The two organizations are against physical
violence against children and they see it has violating the child’s human rights. They use
 primary sources such as personal interviews combined with statistics and respond to theconditions in which students are being punished. This support is used to build the argumentin states where it is still legal, corporal punishment should be replaced with a moreeffective and less violent method of discipline. This source supports the claims made bysome of my other sources by repeating the idea that there are more effective ways to tackle bad behavior in educational environments. This source is useful in relation to my argument because it includes information from credited sources such as the United Nations.Burstyn, Joan N., Geoff Bender, Ronnie Casella, Howard W. Gordon, Domingo P. Guerra,Kristen V. Luschen, Rebecca Stevens, and Kimberly M. Williams.
 Preventing Violence in Schools: a Challenge to American Democracy
. New Jersey: L. ErlbaumAssociates, 2001. Print.This book was specifically written for students in courses that focus on education,social policy and qualitative research among other community based subject matter. It isalso beneficial for professionals that deal with youth. Guidance counselors and teachersthat work with lower level students in the elementary level to the high school level would be just some examples. This book is useful because it gives an analysis of violence prevention programs and their success. The authors do this by using data fromobservations, interviews, as well as published data from the schools to create a well balanced piece of work that is different from many of the other research studies performed because it
focuses on the cultural and structural context of school violence and violence prevention efforts
using quantitative measures and ethnography. Other researchers may just use quantitative measures, such as surveys, to assess the effectiveness of violence
 prevention programs (250). Because this book increases its scope by using quantitativeresearch and then expanding on it with ethnographic studies, it becomes a credibleresource. This book is even more useful to my paper because well-esteemed individualswho used research to make qualitative arguments supporting violence prevention programsand their effectiveness wrote it.Friedman, Matt, and Bob Considine. "N.J. Gov. Christie Approves Toughest Anti-bullying
Law in the Country.”
, 07 Jan. 2011. Web. 27 Oct. 2011.<http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2011/01/nj_gov_christie_approves_tough.html>.Tyler Clementi was a freshman at Rutgers who committed suicide after hisroommate bullied him by posting a video of Clementi with another man in an intimatesetting. The media brought to mainstream the incident and many other instances of  bullying and harassment that led to laws against the violence. This article responds towhen Jersey decided to enact stronger laws on bullying in public schools and publiccolleges. The bill helps by mandating schools to set up anti-bullying programs andrequiring school employees to undergo training on how to spot bullying which is what Iam proposing is a better alternative then paddling or suspending students from school.This source is useful because it shows a recent problem with violence at an institution of higher le
arning revealing that bullying isn’t just something younger kids
cope with. It alsoshows how governments are stepping in to handle the widespread problem by making surethat schools can help prevent it with their existing resources."School Bullying Affects Majority Of Elementary Students
Science Daily: News & Articles in Science, Health, Environment & Technology
. Science Daily, 12 Apr.2007. Web. 27 Oct. 2011.<http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2007/04/070412072345.htm>.Science Daily wrote this article, as a result of a child behavioral study conducted by doctors and researchers sponsored by the National Institutes of Health. It highlights the
two forms of bullying: indirect and direct which are prevalent from very young ages. “Kids
who are routinely victimized exhibit higher levels of depression, anxiety and suicidalthoughts than do non-victims. Such statistics highlight the importance of being able toidentify at-risk kids and assess the effectiveness of interventions.
Some efforts effectivein stopping school bullying range from school wide presentations, to mediation sessionsand discussions that allow students to voice their experiences when they were the victim of violence or saw someone else being victimized. These efforts promote positive peer  pressure and an attitude change from eve
ryone in the school’s community from
recessmonitors to parents. This is beneficial to my argument because it contains statistics to
 backup the idea that bullying is detrimental to students’ health and that anti
-violent programs are effective when working with people that experience conflict. This source willadd to other sources I have by giving background information on a fairly common actionthat leads to bullying and the efforts that can be made to make sure that educationalenvironments remain safe to students.
