7. Education: crimino-repellent factor of antisocial behaviors. Author: Lic. Angelo Rafael Camacho Esquivel. Abstract: The problem of delinquency in Mexico is undeniable, and the increase of crime throughout the country directly and indirectly affects the personal and social development of the Mexican people. Mass media shows evidence that criminal activities increase steadily, so education is presented as a means to try preventing the development of antisocial behavior, that can lead to crime, remembering that not all antisocial behavior is a crime, neither all crime is an antisocial behavior. From the previous idea arises the justification of a research performed by the author of this article, which is based on the social problems related to delinquency; and being that a negative social activity, its opponent will be the strengthening of the positive social phenomenon such as education seen from a perspective aimed at prevention as crimino-repellent antisocial behavioral element that may lead to crime.
