dc.description.abstractJuvenile violence has been a hot topic in the media during the past year. Front-page articles have appeared in Newsweek and Time magazines, delivering people throughout the United States information about homicides committed by juveniles. This study was an attempt to discover whether the perceptions of teachers and administrators were accurate compared to the actual data of juvenile crime. Overall, out of the nine people interviewed only three thought that violence was increasing. Differences were found between responses by school teachers versus school administrators. Future studies might examine these differences in responses.en_US
