The Effects of High Schools on Crime in Their Neighborhoods.
Roncek, Dennis W.; Lobosco, Antoinette
Social Science Quarterly, v64 n3 p598-613 Sep 1983
Burglaries and auto thefts are higher next to public high schools than in adjoining neighborhoods or next to private high schools. This difference may be explained because public high school grounds and the adjacent blocks are seen as public property, while private school grounds are closed to outsiders. (Author/IS)
