Legal Implications of Profiling Students for Violence.
Bailey, Kirk A.
Psychology in the Schools, v38 n2 p141-55 Mar 2001
Discusses how predicting violent activity with a youth violence profile in school raises legal concerns focusing on the validity and use of profiles as social science evidence: the impact of potential discrimination, search and seizure, and the implications for privacy. Argues that these issues rest on fundamental concerns about the general validity of profiles as scientific tools. (Contains 29 references.) (Author/GCP)
