Criminal justice, recent scholarship


For all of recorded time societies have grappled with the question of what to do with problem kids. Marte, a sociologist and teacher, does not propose an answer but a method for evaluating the many facets of delinquent behavior in adolescents. His study is intended for professionals in the field. It covers the subject by gender, rural or urban residence, family situations and more. He freely admits that the results were surprising. They suggest that no one method will work to solve the problem and that some, such as parental involvement, are not as effective as previously thought.
