Today's Delinquent, v6 Dec 1987
This volume deals with the issue of schools and delinquency and contains three major articles. "American Education: American Delinquency" (Gary D. Gottfredson) reviews the documentation for the successes and failures of American education as it has import for the generation and/or control of law violations of youth. It explains how families, neighborhoods, communities, and the established social order combine to determine the fate of educational efforts. "Schools and Delinquency Prevention" (David P. Farrington) responds to Gottfredson's analysis with general agreement but presents reasoned reservations about Gottfredson's thesis that the school offers more promise for delinquency prevention than does the family, the peer group, and the juvenile justice system. "Examining the Potential of Delinquency Prevention through Alternative Education" (Denise C. Gottfredson) presents an inclusive analysis of the results produced by evaluations of alternative school programs. (NB)
