The Delinquent School Child - A Study of Ten Cases Brought Before the Westchester County Children's Court, at the Request of the School
The main purpose of this dissertation is to study the apparent causal factors of school disturbance where the behavior of the child is so chronic or unlawful that it comes to the attention of Children's Court. During the twentieth century, emphasis in social work had been placed on the child. Many laws have been legislated in relation to the health, working hours, education, economic security and general welfare of the children. Prior to the twentieth century, although the child was recognized to a certain extent, there was very little emphasis placed on understanding him as an individual and recognizing his need for security and affection. In this day the total personality of the child is considered. Since our future as a nation depends on our children, it is fitting and necessary that all efforts be made to develop them physically, emotionally, spiritually and mentally.
