Meet the problem head-on. Adopt a zero-tolerance approach. Principals, administrators, and teachers should determine how much gang activity their school has and then take steps toward abatement. Many schools have policies, which address gang problems. These policies include some of the following: banning starter jackets and other professional and collegiate sports team apparel, banning pagers and portable phones, or having a closed campus. Schools must work in conjunction with parents and local law enforcement officials to find as many resources as they can to battle the problem and help save these kids.
