Youth Violence: False Fears and Hard Truths.
Dohrn, Bernardine
Educational Leadership, v55 n2 p45-47 Oct 1997
Many Americans view today's youth as menacing. Actually, a small percentage are arrested or incarcerated for violent offenses, only 5% are arrested for anything, adults commit 86% of all crimes, and teenage male violence is a long-standing phenomenon. However, youth homicide is a gun-fueled epidemic. Educators must resist legislators' criminalization of students, create mentoring programs, and advocate for children. (MLH)
