DescriptionContentsAuthors

Until relatively recently in Britain police involvement in schools was generally limited to the odd talk on drugs or 'stranger danger' or much more serious events that were clearly a crime. The concept of 'anti-social behaviour' was rarely used in relation to school children. Public discourse about young people more commonly links their behaviour to a 'lack of discipline in school' or 'poor parenting'; as well as the potential for problem behavior developing into 'anti-social' or 'criminal' behavior. Although schools are one of the safest places for most young people there is a great deal of generalized anxiety about schools and the behaviour of young people in and around schools. This book brings together a number of experts from within the fields of criminology, social policy and education to take a careful and critical look at these issues, underpinned by a number of original research projects that investigate the experiences of young people, teachers and parents.
