RURAL YOUTH DELINQUENCY--SOME QUESTIONS AS WE LOOK AHEAD.
DANIELS, LINCOLN
PROGRESSIVE URBANIZATION AND INDUSTRIALIZATION HAVE RESULTED IN HIGHER JUVENILE DELINQUENCY RATES, AND WHILE THE MIGRATION FROM RURAL TO URBAN AREAS SEEMS TO BE STABILIZING, DELINQUENCY HAS BEEN AND WILL CONTINUE TO BE MORE OF A PROBLEM IN URBAN THAN RURAL AREAS. IN MANY CASES RURAL AREAS ARE CONFRONTED WITH A LACK OF PROPER DETENTION FACILITIES AND PRACTICE UNSOUND PROBATION SERVICES LEADING TO EXCESSIVE OR UNNECESSARY COMMITMENTS TO JUVENILE INSTITUTIONS. TO ALLEVIATE DELINQUENCY ON A SOUND SYSTEMATIC BASIS, THE SCHOOLS SHOULD BE THE MAIN AXIS AROUND WHICH A COMMUNITY PROGRAM WOULD REVOLVE. THROUGH SUCH A COMMUNITY DELINQUENCY PROGRAM, RURAL YOUTH WOULD BE AFFORDED EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES TO BENEFIT FROM PROFESSIONAL SERVICES WHICH ARE NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE TO MANY OF THEM. THIS SPEECH WAS PRESENTED AT THE NATIONAL OUTLOOK CONFERENCE ON RURAL YOUTH, OCTOBER 23-26, 1967, WASHINGTON, D. C., SPONSORED JOINTLY BY THE U. S. DEPARTMENTS OF AGRICULTURE, HEALTH, EDUCATION, AND WELFARE, INTERIOR, AND LABOR, OEO, AND THE PRESIDENT'S COUNCIL ON YOUTH OPPORTUNITY. (ES)
