Major School District Adds Anger Management Classes

The Los Angeles Unified School District is the third largest school district in the nation. Therefore, it is often a trend setter in public education nationwide.

According to LAUSD Adult Education Coordinator, Swanzi Saunders, “Those of us in adult education have received many requests over a number of years to offer anger management as a part of our course offerings for the entire district. We finally decided that now is the time to offer this much needed course”.

Mrs. Saunders announced plans to offer the Anderson & Anderson Anger Management Curriculum in 20 local Adult High Schools beginning in January. It will quickly be expanded district wide as educators receive certification in this model.

LAUSD joins other school districts in California, Texas, New York and other states in adopting the Anderson & Anderson model of anger management for use in teaching skills in managing anger and stress, as well enhancing skills in assertive communication and emotional intelligence.

Perhaps these classes will reduce the number of students harassed, hit, stressed, and beat-up in crowded urban public schools.

Will these classes be only for the already violent prone or is there attempt to prevent problems?
