This paper evaluates the outcomes of the implementation of a violence prevention program in rural schools serving a ethnically diverse populations, originally developed for urban middle schools.
The effectiveness of Responding In Peaceful and Positive Ways (RIPP), a violence prevention program originally developed for urban middle schools serving predominantly African American student populations, was evaluated in rural schools serving ethnically diverse student populations. The authors used a between-school design to compare outcomes over two years for a cohort of students at four intervention schools where the RIPP program was implemented, and four no-intervention control schools. Although results were not consistent across all measures and time points, the authors found several significant intervention effects on self-report measures of aggression, victimization, life satisfaction and mediating variables including knowledge and attitudes.
