Sprache des Tagungstitel:
Using longitudinal data we examined structural and individual differences on perceived school participation. Following the results of a series of experimental studies by Kurt Lewin and his colleagues (1939), showing that democratic leadership leads to less aggression, we further draw the focus on positive effects of participation. In particular, we suggest participation to strengthen school attachment and attachment in turn reduces externalising problems. Result show that participation is associated to class size and socioeconomic status. Further data supports the hypotheses that participation increases attachment and thereby leads to less externalising behaviour.
