Square Pegs into Round Holes? Meeting the Educational Needs of Girls Engaged in Delinquent Behaviour
Chen Zhang, Kaili
Emotional & Behavioural Difficulties, v13 n3 p179-192 Sep 2008
This study reports data on the challenges and needs of girls engaged in delinquent behaviour and the effectiveness of services provided by a girls' home. Implications and suggestions for the planning and implementation of effective programmes and services in alternative educational settings are included. It concludes that alternative education is not just a change of educational environment for youths in trouble, an understanding of the unique needs of girls and female offenders must be translated into practice as educators continue to find solutions for helping girls who are engaging in risky or delinquent behaviours.
