The authors aimed to compile a list of barriers and facilitators to providing incarcerated youth with a quality education. They asked 78 teachers in the juvenile justice system what they perceived to be the top 3 barriers and facilitators to providing incarcerated youth with a quality education. The authors used the constant comparative method to analyze the data, and they developed the following 9 themes: personnel concerns, academics, student concerns, discipline, materials and supplies, parental involvement, funding, communication, and facilities. These themes serve as a foundation for discussing how to improve the quality of education for incarcerated youth. The authors discuss results in terms of what teachers and administrators can do to improve the quality of education of incarcerated youth. (Contains 1 table.)
