Using an imaginary case study, Mike Baker asks an expert panel how they would tackle escalating gang-related incidents within schools.
Amongst other questions we ask: How involved should teachers become with troublesome pupils? What is the best way to deal with the threat of violence? How can violence be curbed? How can vulnerable pupils be dissuaded from signing up to the dominant gang culture?
