Students who are under motivated, prone to violence, or display other at risk behaviors, have a negative effect on others around them in school. Educators and classmates of these students experience concern, fear, and frustration which have a negative effect on learning (Petersen & Skiba, 2001). Providing students with options to develop leadership may promote a positive school climate where negative environmental factors are less prevalent. A review of available literature examines the relationship between school climate, respect, and student leadership. Implications for school counselors are included with an Adlerian viewpoint.
