Urban Boys' Social Networks and School Violence.
Minden, Joel; Henry, David B.; Tolan, Patrick H.; Gorman-Smith, Deborah
Professional School Counseling, v4 n2 p95-104 Dec 2000
Examines the extent to which network unconventionality relates to school violence in an inner-city sample of adolescents. Results suggest that school violence is related to unconventional social network characteristics, independent of the effects of individual deviance. Suggests that attempts to reduce school violence might focus on increasing time spent with adults and developing peer and adult relationships. (Contains 29 references and 3 tables.) (GCP)
