Survey: Education key to reducing crime – Qiu Quanlin and Sun Xiaohua

From China Daily:

Criminal activities by migrant teenagers have been increasing in South China’s Guangdong Province due to a lack of proper education within families and schools, according to a recent survey.

The survey, conducted by the Guangdong Provincial Prevention and Control of Juvenile Organization, found that migrant teenage criminal cases accounted for nearly 52 per cent of the province’s juvenile crime last year.

The survey was carried out across 10 major cities and over 20 counties in the province last year, including Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Dongguan, which have seen hundreds of thousands of moving in over the last decade.
