School and Community Linkages in Socialization: Avenues of Alienation.
One of 52 theoretical papers on school crime and its relation to poverty, this chapter is an attempt to adopt a social network model to describe linkages between the school and socialization organizations within a community, and, from this view of the social structure, to develop strategies that will promote more arrangements that are better able to meet the needs of youth and of the community at large. It is the contention of this paper that the divisiveness between the various elements of contemporary socialization systems opens up avenues of alienation for young people. The social network model of school-community relationships that this paper presents is a middle-range effort to develop a conceptual framework for understanding the contacts between different socialization organizations within a limited field. A network model offers a practical action approach to the problems of school and community socialization linkages, restoring to concerned persons some measure of control in handling the serious problems of socialization.
