Summary

One of 52 theoretical papers on school crime and its relation to poverty, this chapter presents theory and data that indicate that alternative educational programs with certain characteristics are a promising method for the prevention and treatment of delinquent behavior. The theory proposes that delinquent behavior is a manifestation of a psychological defense against threats to self-esteem, much of the threat originating in experiences at school. Individualized educational programs that maximize success experiences and provide for more personal teacher-student relationships have the potential to reduce the provocations for and strengthen the controls against delinquency.
