School Community Journal, v11 n2 p93-112 Fall-Win 2001
A person-process-context ecological systems model provides an organizing framework for examining student and parental perceptions of school safety. Overall, adolescent age, SES, and neighborhood predicted school characteristics. School characteristics predicted parental involvement in schools, peers' educational expectations, exposure to delinquent peers, and so forth, which, in turn, each predicted perceptions of school safety.
