Managing disruptive student behaviour: the involvement of law enforcement and juvenile justice in schools

Fields, Barry A. (2003) Managing disruptive student behaviour: the involvement of law enforcement and juvenile justice in schools. In: International Conference of the Australian Association for Research in Education (AARE 2002): Problematic Futures: Educational Research in an Era of Uncertainty, 1-5 Dec 2002, Brisbane, Australia.


In the search for more effective ways of managing juvenile violence and youth alienation in schools and in the broader community, a closer relationship between schools and a range of government and community agencies has developed. Cooperation between schools and the police and the juvenile
justice system has brought benefits, but has also created tensions and exposed differences in viewpoints about how best to manage student behaviour. The control/punishment paradigm dominates the thinking of large sections of the community, as well as politicians, many government agencies, and some educational administrators and policy makers. This viewpoint has made it difficult for promising
responses to anti-social behaviour to find a place in the behaviour management strategies of schools.
