Abstract

Using data collected in 2007 from a national sample of nearly 3,500 students this study explores the utility of a more integrated approach to understanding student avoidance behavior. More specifically, the interactive influences of school disorder/incivilities and previous experiences with school-based victimization are assessed in estimating student avoidance behavior, via school fear. Results show that several of these interactions were significant in estimating student avoidance behavior. Such findings imply promise for an integrated, interactional approach to theoretical understanding of student fear-related avoidance.
