Social Context, Crime, and Educational Outcomes

David Kirk, Criminology

The aim of this proposed study is to integrate the neighborhood effects and school effects lines of research by exploring the differential influences of each context on youth behavioral outcomes: first, it seeks to determine which social organizational factors of school and neighborhood environments independently and jointly influence juvenile arrest and school dropout (Aim 1); second, it seeks to determine to what extent juvenile arrest contributes to educational failure above and beyond the common set of correlates which contribute to both outcomes (Aim 2).
