    schema:reviewBody ""Schools and Delinquency provides a comprehensive review of the current research about the causes of delinquency, substance abuse, dropout and truancy, and the role of the school in preventing delinquent behavior patterns. Examining school-based prevention programs and practices for grades kindergarten through 12, Denise Gottfredson identifies a broad array of effective strategies geared toward improving the school environment as well as some that specifically target youths at risk for developing problem behaviors. She also explains why several popular school-based prevention strategies are ineffective and should be abandoned. Gottfredson analyzes, within the larger context of the community, the special challengers to effective programming that arise in disorganized settings, identifying ways to overcome these obstacles and make the most troubled schools safer and more productive environments."--Jacket." ;
