(p.209) Chapter 11 Future Theory, Research, and Policy
Bullying, School Violence, and Climate in Evolving Contexts

This chapter focuses on issues of theory, research, and policy that should be considered in the future, especially issues germane to the theoretical model of school violence in evolving contexts. The chapter elaborates on the importance of including the temporal-historical context in future study and the methodological and conceptual implications of the recent revolution in data infrastructure, including the need to build collaborations with other “big data” organizations. The chapter outlines the need to develop conceptual and methodological tools of analysis with “the school at the center,” including school profiles as analytic tools and identifying classes of schools sharing similar profiles, and calls for studying how schools are nested in multiple ecological contexts, including the hierarchical educational structures of districts, counties, states, nations, and the global context, including the role of technology and media. Finally, the chapter discusses the need to study the impact of the school on its context.

Keywords:   context, theory, research, policy, technology, big data, school profile
