Abstract

The school has an important role to play in the prevention of delinquency, for it is during his school-days that many of a child's delinquencies develop. It is within the potentialities of a child's school to discover his real needs and to understand his capabilities. In the course of providing a situation whitin the school in which this task may be accomplished, it is of vital importance to determine the relation of the child to his social group and the effeect of the group upon the individual child. This study will discuss the position of a sub-group of five boys within a classroom group, their relationship to the group and the effect of this situation upon the community.
