Truancy and Behavioral Problems in Some Urban Schools.
Her Majestys Inspectorate of Schools, London (England).
As a result of a conference dealing with truancy, problems of non-attendance, and violent and disruptive behavior at school, a small scale survey was conducted of 18 urban schools in England to examine these problems and to report on practices and procedures which the schools had found helpful in coping with them. It emerged during the survey that there is unlikely to be one single solution, or set of solutions, to behavioral problems and that each school has to construct its own approach in the light of local circumstances. Various problems and individual approaches to these problems are discussed, as is school organization, communication with parents, and staff utilization. It is suggested that any attack on behavioral problems in the schools be concerned with the following: the quality of the teaching; the curriculum; school organization and management; and discipline.
