Abstract

Violence and crime have become a significant problem in our school systems. One reason for violence and unacceptable behavior in schools is that teenagers have often not learned acceptable social behavior early in their adolescent years. The purpose of this phenomenological study is to understand the essence of the lived experiences of students and teachers working together, utilizing servant leadership principals against violence and crime, in order to create a safer learning environment at school. This study explores how students and teachers can work together by using the principles of servant leadership as a means to transfer values of team building, responsibility, and community service. Examining servant leadership, we found that educators have an ethical duty to keep students and the school safe. Students and teachers can advocate against violence by promoting personal growth, servant leadership, critical reflection, and creative problem-solving. The future implications of a safe school rest on the notion of cooperation and service as leaders. By encouraging students and teachers to incorporate servant leadership attributes a safe school be is inevitable.
