Abstract: As institutions collectively serving young adolescents of every race, creed, ethnic, and socioeconomic group, middle level schools provide an ideal environment for combating adolescent abuse and neglect. Additionally, because of their frequent, recurring, and long-term contact with the young adolescents they teach, middle level teachers are in an excellent position to serve as primary agents in the identification of young adolescents who are victims of abuse and to report these cases to child protective services (CPS) as required by law.
