APPENDIX: School Violence, Youth Problems, Violence Prevention, and Conduct Education in the 21st Century
In recent years school violence has made many pieces of nation-shaking highlighted headline news, which have astounded the Americans. It may happen at any school, at any time, and by students of any age. Some experts believe this is the most important national crisis the U.S. is facing.
"In the 21st century the problem will happen not only continuously in the U.S. but also in lots of other countries all over the world, if we do not act." said Dr. John Newton in the late 20th century. Recent tragedies have proved this warning prediction.
"The most effective and proper way to solve the problem is appropriate conduct education." said Dr. Newton.
"The significance of the problem" is much more important than "the number of people killed in schools".
In addition to shooting and killing, other kinds of school violence, such as rape, sexual assault, aggravated assault, robbery, bullying, mugging, fighting, theft, harassment, ..., and other youth problems, like suicide, suicide attempt, suicide inclination, pessimism, sense of inferiority, lose of self-control, relationship problems, emotion problems, drug abuse, discrimination, ..., cannot be ignored, either.
Some measures may handle a few "symptoms" temporarily and partially but are not solutions for education, particularly in view of our responsibilities for the whole society.
Now an effective, proper, comprehensive, deep-rooted and permanent solution is needed!
The book, "Complete Conduct Principles for the 21st Century" by Dr. John Newton, is regarded as "the very one that can effectively help solve the problem of school violence in a right way" by some experts in education, including Dr. Steve White, who pointed out clearly: "If students, teachers and parents can learn the conduct principles in this book well, then that 'unsolvable' problem will be solved. It is not difficult at all to learn them, because the book is a simple, easy, clear, convenient and self-contained handbook, well designed to suit most people." The book was also praised as "a compendium of concisely expressed, practical, informative, pertinent, workable advice" by Michael J. Carson, a professional book reviewer.
"Unlike most books of this subject, it is NOT a religious book, nor is a collection of old conduct rules."
As analyzed in the Preface of the book, "from now on learning good conduct should be placed as No. 1 in education."
The book's merit and importance have been recognized and praised by many education experts, elected public officials, and world leaders. Some educational units, ranging from the level of nation or state to individual school or university, have ordered the book either as textbook/reference book or as an active action to prevent school violence, to improve education and to benefit students, teachers & parents.
"The book will also be effective for violence prevention for the whole society."
Hence, to prevent school violence and other violence, to improve education, and to benefit students, teachers, parents, & the whole society, I earnestly request you to inform the students, teachers, parents, school library and other relevant people you know of the availability of the book.
A reasonable method you may consider choosing is to simply forward this letter to them.
Although it will be helpful and appreciated, it is NOT necessary that you state any endorsement or the like.
Your efforts to prevent school violence and other violence, to improve education, and to benefit students, teachers, parents, & the whole society will be highly appreciated.
