The effects of school quality on juvenile crime
This essay-the 2001 winner of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland's undergraduate essay competition, Essays in Economics-investigates whether students who attend higher-quality schools commit fewer crimes. If so, improving school quality might be worth considering as an approach to reducing juvenile crime. The author finds some evidence that higher-quality schools are associated with lower probabilities of committing some types of crime.
