Overview

School Crime and Juvenile Justice offers a current and comprehensive overview of this serious and growing problem, examining the nature, extent, and causes of school crime and disruptive behavior. It reviews the theories that attempt to explain the relationship between school crime, crime in the community, the role of parents and peers, and schools' organization and policies. Lawrence includes a discussion of the most recent research findings, laws and school policies, prevention strategies, and alternative schools and special education programs for at-risk and delinquent students. Ideal for criminal justice courses as well as for scholars and school administrators, this text takes a closer look at the problem of crime and violence in and around schools, and offers a clear understanding of how people can work together to create safer schools and how educators and juvenile justice officials can develop cooperative delinquency prevention programs.
