The Effectiveness Paradox: Institutional vs Community Placement of Offenders.
Sarri, Rosemary
Journal of Social Issues, v37 n3 p34-50 Sum 1981
Empirical data show that there are more negative consequences for youth offenders committed to institutional rather than community-based programs. However, public policy, governed by political factors rather than knowledge of the relative effectiveness of alternative programs, favors punishment and retribution over rehabilitation goals.
