The main sections of the report cover advice on the support available to address problems of youth violence or gangs; a summary of what works in tackling violence in educational establishments; some considerations when commissioning programs to improve outcomes for young people; and a set of resources and practical checklists for use by school officials. A detailed examination of the legal powers afforded to teachers in relation to discipline in the classroom is provided in the final sections of the report.
