Administration of Educational Programs for Delinquent Youth.
Severns, George W., Jr.; And Others
Presented are three papers on the administration of educational programs for delinquent youth. In a paper by G. Severns the total lack of coordination between agencies when programing for delinquent youth is pointed out, and a continuum of educational programing with a maximum of communication within and among agencies is suggested. Pennsylvania's Assessment Teaching Curriculum is described in the second paper by I. Grignano as an educational alternative for delinquents which operates in conjunction with established curriculum guidelines and, therefore, assures the child of transferable school time that can be applied to school placement anywhere within the state. In a final paper, R. Bell reviews historical trends (such as crimes are now committed in areas considered safe) in the pattern of delinquency; outlines three factors (physiological, psychological, and socioeconomic) which lead to alienation, disruption, and delinquency; and recommends diagnostic/prescriptive approaches to remediate the problem.
