Fear of School Violence and the Ameliorative Effects of Student Social Capital
Sacco, Vincent F.; Nakhaie, M. Reza
Journal of School Violence, v6 n1 p3-25 2007
Data from the Canadian National Survey of Children and Youth are employed in order to investigate hypotheses regarding the relationships between students' social connections and their feelings of vulnerability to criminal danger. The analysis is preceded by a review of the research relating to school fear and social capital. Findings point to the importance of the social capital inhered in the students' relationship with parents, friends, and teachers as well as their own personality characteristics. The paper concludes with a discussion of some of the broader theoretical and policy implications which emerge from this analysis. (Contains 5 tables.)
