Truancy intervention and violent offending: Evidence from a randomized controlled trial

This research used Australian data from a truancy reduction experiment to examine whether participants in the program, relative to a control group, enjoyed ancillary benefits related to the relationship between risk factors and violence. The results provided partial support as the program weakened the effects of some of the risk factors on violence over time, but not all of the risk factors.
