Juvenile Delinquency among African-American Males: Implications for Special Education
Bowman, Lisa J.
Multiple Voices for Ethnically Diverse Exceptional Learners, v4 n1 p62-72 Nov 2000
Juvenile delinquency is a pervasive and costly problem. As a society, we are losing too many youth to substance abuse, gang involvement, and criminal activity. The toll delinquency places on families, educational systems, and social welfare systems costs monetarily and socially. In this article, I review the research literature on juvenile delinquency among African-American males to determine (a) the quantity of research on this topic, (b) the quality of research, and (c) topics that have been investigated in this area. In particular, I sought to determine the degree to which researchers have focused on delinquency within the context of race and disability. In addition, I provide implications for future research with a focus on delinquency and disability. (Contains 2 tables.)
