Preventing and Addressing Violence in Schools with Dr. Ardavan Eizadirad

Preventing and Addressing Violence in Schools with Dr. Ardavan Eizadirad

By Stephen Hurley

Host Stephen Hurley scans the education ecosystem, looking for the people and ideas that are starting to change the way we think about teaching, learning, schools and communities.

In this episode, we’re looking to deepen the conversation around violence in our schools. It’s an issue that is receiving a great deal of attention in the media, but there are many inside and outside of education who believe that solutions presented don’t get to the root causes of the problem. One of those who believe that we need to dig deeper and respond from that deeper level of understanding is Dr. Ardavan Eizadirad. His recent article in The Conversation is Preventing and addressing violence in schools: 4 priorities as educators plan for next year.

Dr. Ardavan Eizadirad is Assistant Professor, Faculty of Education, Wilfrid Laurier University and Executive Director of Youth Association for Academic, Athletics, and Character Education (YAAACE) a non-profit organization in the Jane and Finch community proving a range of programs in academics, athletics, community safety, and violence prevention and intervention.
