Prevention of Bullying in Schools, Colleges, and Universities: Research Report and Recommendations
This report results from the work of a blue-ribbon AERA task force mandated to prepare and present practical short-term and long-term recommendations to address bullying of children and youth. The epicenter for bullying is schools and colleges, yet many administrators, teachers, and related personnel lack training to address bullying and do not know how to intervene to reduce it. The peer-reviewed report, presented as a series of 11 briefs, addresses legislative, policy, and procedural matters with pragmatic and practical strategies for prevention of bullying.

International Handbook of Research on Environmental Education
The environment and contested notions of sustainability are increasingly topics of public interest, political debate, and legislation across the world. Environmental education journals now publish research from a wide variety of methodological traditions that show linkages between the environment, health, development, and education.The purpose of this 51-chapter handbook is not only to illuminate the most important concepts, findings, and theories that have been developed by EE research, but also to critically examine the historical progression of the field, its current debates and controversies, what is still missing from the EE research agenda, and where that agenda might be headed.
Editors: Robert B. Stevenson, Michael Brody, Justin Dillon, Arjen E.J. Wals

Research on Schools, Neighborhoods, and Communities: Toward Civic Responsibility
Today, many research literatures—e.g., health, housing, transportation, and education—focus on civic progress, yet rarely are there efforts to interrelate these literatures to better understand urgent problems and promising possibilities in education, wherein social context is central. In this volume, social context—in particular, the inequality of opportunity that results from geography—is integral to the arguments, analyses, and case studies presented. Written by more than 40 education scholars from top universities across the nation, the research presented in this volume provides historical, moral, and scientifically based arguments with the potential to inform understandings of civic problems associated with education, youth, and families, and to guide the actions of responsible citizens and institutions dedicated to advancing the public good.
Editor: William F. Tate IV
