The Conditional Effect of Social Class on the Dropout-Delinquency Relationship.
Jarjoura, G. Roger
Journal of Research in Crime and Delinquency, v33 n2 p232-55 May 1996
Tests the proposition that middle-class dropouts are more likely to engage in delinquency as a result of dropping out than lower-class dropouts. Seeks to test social control and strain theory explanations for observed dropout-delinquency relationships. Results indicate dropping out is more likely to be associated with higher levels of delinquency involvement for middle-class than for lower-class youths. Discusses implications. (KW)
