S4SCHATC: S4 Education: Community school - School Orientation

School orientation; mean of 7 items in the scale for community school.

MEASURE: Education (Follow-ups): School Bonding Grades Activities and Orientation

The school attachment items included are taken from the work of Cernkovich and 
Giordano (1992). The items are used to evaluate the adolescent's educational 
experience along two dimensions: Bonding to Teachers (e.g., "Most of my teachers 
treat me fairly.") and School Orientation (e.g., "Schoolwork is very important 
to me."). Respondents rate 13 statements, using a 5-point Likert scale ranging 
from "Strongly Disagree" to "Strongly Agree," with higher scores indicating a 
greater degree of academic commitment. The items are first asked regarding the
community school which the youth attends and, for youths housed in an institution
for three or more months during the recall period, the items are repeated to attain
the degree of academic commitment regarding the institutional school.

(1) Strongly Disagree
(2) Disagree
(3) Neither Agree or Disagree
(4) Agree
(5) Strongly Agree
