The Criminality of Former "Special Educational Provision" Permanently "Excluded from School" Adolescents as Young Adults (16-23): Costs and Practical Implications.
Pritchard, Colin; Cox, Malcolm
Journal of Adolescence, v21 n5 p609-20 Oct 1998
Analysis of police records of criminal "careers" of adolescents "excluded from school" who had been in "special educational provision" found that 63% had criminal convictions as young adults. Of the excluded adolescents who were also "ex-child care," 10% had a significantly lower crime rate than the others, suggesting that with targeted support, effective intervention is possible in a number of cases.(Author/JDM)
