Poverty, not the “teenage brain” account for high rates of teen crime

Los Angeles, CA. While many blame the “teenage brain” for high rates of teen crime, violence, and driving incidents, an important factor has been ignored: teenagers as a group suffer much higher average poverty rates than do older adults. A new study out today in SAGE Open finds that teenagers are no more naturally crime-prone than any other group with high poverty rates.

A new study examines surveys of community college leaders and finds that community colleges must create close connections with community partners in order to provide successful training and employment opportunities for their public health students.



How do students with debt fare in community college?

Community college students who borrow up to $1,999 in student loans during their first two years of community college complete 17% fewer academic credits in that same time period than their peers who take out $2,000 to $3,999 in loans or do not take out any loans at all. This finding and more were published in a new study out today in The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science (a SAGE Publishing journal).


How do sports news shows disguise sexism against women’s sports?

Sports news shows cover women’s sports in a dull, lackluster manner, making women’s sports seem less exciting and entertaining than men’s, according to the latest research in a study spanning 25 years. Based on its latest iteration in 2014, the study finds that sexist coverage of women’s sports is often subtle, and therefore difficult to challenge. The study is out today in Gender & Society, a SAGE Publishing journal.
