Characteristics of Disruptive High School Students. Technical Report No. 96.
Hagstrom, Warren O.; Gardner, Leslie L. Hugh
This report contrasts the characteristics of high school students with disorderly histories and those without such histories. The sample consists of 1,318 eleventh graders in eight Wisconsin school systems. The major dependent variables are students' reports of being sent from classes for disciplinary reasons and skipping school with a gang of kids; the merits of these indicators are discussed. Questionnaires completed by students provided all the data, except IQ, which was obtained from school records. Disorderliness, or rebelliousness, is contrasted with other types of student deviance; a taxonomy of such deviance is presented and discussed. The report concludes by noting the implications for school policy and for further research of the empirical findings. (Author)
