This study inquired into the effects of teacher behaviors on the academic and social performance of incarcerated juvenile adolescent girls prior to their incarceration. Data were collected from 12 adolescent girls who participated in at least two (no more than three) individual interviews. Qualitative data analysis identified five overarching themes which revealed that some teachers are negatively influencing the academic and social adolescent girls who are at risk for school failure and juvenile delinquency. Implications and contributions of the study’s findings are discussed.
