Socioeconomic Status and Behavior Problems: Addressing the Context for School Safety
Boroughs, Michael; Massey, Oliver T.; Armstrong, Kathleen H.
Journal of School Violence, v4 n4 p31-46 2005
Violence in the schools is a fundamental concern for students, educators and communities as they collectively address issues that make schools safer. A longitudinal analysis of disciplinary referrals was conducted with a large countywide school district to measure differences across socioeconomic status and school level. These variables proved to be critical in identifying and targeting schools that may need to be the focus of prevention and intervention efforts. Other suggestions related to the effects of school violence on academic instruction and methods for the targeting of services are discussed along with implications for educators and mental health professionals in school based settings.
