Alternative Schools for Disruptive Youth 

Alternative Schools for Disruptive Youth (1999) explores the option of providing effective alternative schooling to troubled youth as one solution to the problem of youth crime and violence. Such schooling for disruptive youth may offer a way to avoid an "explosion" of violence and victimization perpetrated by a growing population of disaffected, poorly educated youth. Adults, for their part, can participate in defusing youth crime by building and supporting alternative education schools as permanent, inclusive, community-based settings that validate children's strengths while developing their academic achievement and social responsiveness. 17 pages
