Juvenile Courts and Public Schools in the 1980s.
Guernsey, Carl E.
This paper calls for a coordinated effort of the public, the juvenile court system, and the schools to alleviate juvenile problems in the 1980s. The following needs are discussed and deemed necessary to this common effort: to identify the problem child at the earliest possible stage; to develop new approaches to the challenge of the child advocate regarding the legal rights of children; and to respond to the special problems of a greater number of deviants through alternative educational and justice programs. The paper concludes that society contributes to the confusion and rebellion of adolescents when judicial authority and educational authority speak with conflicting voices. (Author/LD)
