§ 31. Mr. Evelyn King
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what research she has authorised into the relationship between the current style of educational organisation and growing juvenile delinquency; and if she will make a statement.
§ Mrs. Thatcher
None. The Association of Education Committees has recently conducted on my behalf an inquiry among its members into the narrower subject of violence in schools. The results are still being analysed. Factors other than education have an effect on pupils' behaviour.
