This study was sponsored by the National Institute of Justice, in cooperation with the Bureau of Justice Assistance, grant number 96-MU-MU-0008. Additional support was provided by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention through grant number 98-JN-FX-0004.
A national study completed in 2000 found that despite the increase in knowledge about "what works" in school delinquency prevention, most of the Nation's schools use prevention practices that are either unproven or known to be ineffective. Much of what schools do has not been studied by scientists to develop knowledge of effectiveness. In many schools, poor implementation may limit program effectiveness, even for programs known to be effective when well implemented.
