Schools and Delinquency provides a comprehensive review and critique of the current research on the causes of delinquency, substance use, drop-out, and truancy, and the role of the school in preventing these behavior patterns. Examining school-based prevention programs and practices for grades K-12, the author identifies a broad array of effective and ineffective strategies. In the larger context of the community, she analyzes the special challenges to effective prevention programming that arise in disorganized settings, identifying ways to overcome these obstacles and make the most troubled schools safer and more productive environments.Read more
