The Subculture of Violence and Delinquency: Individual vs. School Context Effects.
Felson, Richard B.; And Others
Social Forces, v73 n1 p155-73 Sep 1994
Analyses of data from the Youth in Transition panel study of boys in 87 public high schools suggest that school-level values reflecting a subculture of violence have substantial effects on interpersonal violence and other forms of delinquency, and that the school subculture of violence operates through a social control process. An academically competitive environment appears to increase delinquency. (SV)
