Destiny's Child: Recognizing the Correlation between Urban Education and Juvenile Delinquency.
Johnson, Robin
Journal of Law and Education, v28 n2 p313-17 Apr 1999
Government programs and initiatives have inadequately addressed education's importance in juvenile detention facilities. Detained juveniles are not "throw-aways." Congress has inadvertently recognized this population through the Urban Education Program; such minors are "at-risk" but not hopeless. Adoption of program guidelines at juvenile facilities nationwide constitutes effective intervention. (22 references) (MLH)
