Theoretical Perspectives on School Crime and Poverty. Summary Volume.
Rubel, Robert J.
This volume summarizes, analyzes, and discusses the 52 papers on theoretical perspectives of school crime and poverty solicited by the National Council on Crime and Delinquency (NCCD) for the purpose of illuminating findings from the "Safe School Study Report to Congress." It also analyzes 12 papers not included in the original NCCD solicitation. Because the articles produced under the NCCD contract totalled almost 2,000 pages, this volume is designed to give enough of an overview of each article to permit readers to decide for themselves whether or not to seek out the original paper. For the benefit of federal, state, and local-level decision-makers and researchers, the reviewer has made narrative comments concerning the value each paper has for various audiences. These narrative comments are set apart from the summary of each paper. The content of this volume can be viewed in three parts. First, the body of this work summarizes each author's article and briefly discusses major ideas, particular problems, and implications for further research. Second, appendices A and B provide various cross-referencing systems that can be used for selecting certain readings within the overall collection. Third, appendix D provides information relating the grading of documents across clarity, novelty, and utility dimensions. (Author/MLF)
