A Meta-Analytic Assessment of Delinquency-Related Outcomes of Alternative Education Programs.
Cox, Stephen M.; And Others
Crime and Delinquency, v41 n2 p219-34 Apr 1995
Reports results of meta-analysis to quantitatively summarize prior empirical research on alternative schools. Alternative education programs have a small overall effect on school performance, attitudes toward school, and self-esteem, but no effect on delinquency. Programs that target a specific population of at-risk youth produce larger effects than those with open admissions. (LKS)
