Factors Associated with Deviant Behavior at Intermountain School.
Minock, Sonya Nesch
The types and frequency of deviance, and the relationship between deviance and factors in the pre-Intermountain, Intermountain, and post-Intermountain experiences, were studied using the male population of the 1964 graduating class at Intermountain School, Brigham City, Utah. Among the important findings, it was noted that (1) of 233 total deviant acts, 84 were time-schedule violations and 66 were drinking and drinking-related violations; (2) the quantitative pattern of deviance was about rhe same during grades 10 and 11 and then decreased during grade 12; (3) there was an inverse relationship between family size and deviance; (4) the lowest average deviance rate occurred among those students whose parents were living together; (5) the students who started school at ages 6 to 7 had the lowest average deviance rate; (6) there was a negative correlation between grade point average and degree of deviance; (7) deviants had higher average scores than non-deviants on 10 of 20 characteristics evaluated by counselors and teachers; and (8) the former Intermountain students with the highest post-high-school "productive activity" scores also had the highest high school average deviance rate.
