Abstract

The present study attempted to investigate self concepts and delinquent behaviours of junior prevocational secondary school students as compared to their grammar secondary school counterparts in Hong Kong. The instrument for the independent measures was adapted from a recent study by Leung and Lau (1989) who examined the relationship between self concepts and delinquent behaviours in junior grammar school students. We administered the questionnaire to 1148 prevocational students in Fl, F2, and F3. The data obtained were then compared with those collected by Leung and Lau (1989) . Statistical analyses showed that grammar school students had a slightly higher self esteem for themselves than prevocational school students while the latter group was more likely to commit deviant acts than the former group. Comparisons across forms further revealed that children entering prevocational schools were basically more deviant than those entering grammar schools.
