Marsh, Tricia Y.; Cornell, Dewey G.
Behavioral Disorders, v26 n2 p152-63 Feb 2001
A survey of 7,848 seventh-, ninth-, and eleventh-grade students on high-risk behaviors found that student school experiences explained more variance than ethnicity. Low academic grades, observation and threat of violence, drug use, and perceived lack of adult and peer support were experiential factors associated with involvement in high-risk behaviors.
