The study focuses on the types of school interventions used in the educational system in order to understand a correlation with criminality. The participants consist of 105 individuals that were sentenced to probation in Parker County, Texas, from January 1, 2015 to February 28, 2015. The research displays gender, race, education, school interventions, juvenile criminality, and adult criminality from the participants of Parker County Community Supervision and Corrections Department. The variables of the participants were then analyzed through a cross tabulation and logistical regression. According to the results, there is no significant association with school interventions and adult criminality. In contrast, the relationship between juvenile criminality and school interventions is statistically significant. Specifically, students are more likely to be involved in juvenile criminality when referred to a secondary school than students that were not referred. Policy implications at both the state level and school level are that policy makers and school officials need to have disciplinary alternatives than school interventions.
