Capstone Project (Open Access)
Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)
This senior capstone explores the effects of living in violent and urban communities on students and their academic achievement through the use of literature review and ethnographic interview with teachers and survey with students. The findings reveal that enrolling students in high crime rate communities into after school programs while simultaneously attending school-based intervention therapy will potentially decrease the academic delay these students are suffering from, because of the exposure to violence in their communities.
