School Crime and Individual Responsibility: The Perpetuation of a Myth?
Kelly, Delos H.; Pink, William T.
Urban Review, v14 n1 p47-63 Spr 1982
School crime may be a product of the organizational structure of the school. The negative, stigmatizing labeling of students contributes to school crime and produces poor (deviant) career decisions. Attempts to increase success rate of individual students must recognize the school's value systems and the origins of its stereotypes. (Author/GPM)
