Description

Many criminologists emphasize the important role of schools in socializing youths and helping to prevent delinquent behaviour. The increasing problems of guns, drugs, victimization and disruption in schools present a challenge that requires a concerted effort by school personnel and criminal justice authorities. This text offers an overview of the topic, including such issues as the relationship of crime in the community and in schools, the correlation between dropout rates and delinquency, the role of parents and peers, and the success of school-based prevention strategies.show more
