Child Maltreatment and School Performance.
Leiter, Jeffrey; Johnsen, Matthew C.
American Journal of Education, v102 n2 p154-89 Feb 1994
Compares a large random sample of maltreated children (n=2,219) to smaller random samples of the general population and children receiving social services to investigate the effects of abuse and neglect on school performance. School-outcome deficits associated with maltreatment are substantively similar to those of children receiving social services. (SLD)
