Summary

A comparative study of geographic and school mobility in areas of high and low delinquency rate is reported. The high delinquency group consisted of 373 elementary school students in youth development project target areas and the low delinquency group was made up of 425 children from other parts of Minneapolis. Data gathered from school and police records showed "substantial" differences between the two groups for factors of race, family size, birthplace (considered to be free of the bias of middle-class values) and intelligence and reading test scores (not bias-free). Mobility and absenteeism figures for students in the target area group were much higher than for those in the comparison group. The report notes that an unstable background played "some role" in the lower reading and intelligence scores of the target area sample. It is felt that educational programs should focus on those factors in the schools and in the economic and family background of the students which lead to absenteeism. Included in the report are a discussion of sample selection, and information about family, school, mobility, and delinquency. There is also a section of technical notes on the procedures for gathering data. Data are summarized in 29 tables. (nh)
