Destin, Mesmin – Future of Children, 2020
Beliefs about socioeconomic mobility have important consequences, writes Mesmin Destin, especially for young people.

Dahl, Gordon B. – Future of Children, 2020
People don't base decisions about their economic life solely on their own individually formed ideas and preferences. Rather, they're influenced by the experiences of their peers and by social group norms.

Altmayer, Christina; Andrade DuBransky, Barbara – Future of Children, 2019
Los Angeles County's experience, write Christina Altmayer and Barbara Andrade DuBransky, shows how a universal offer of assistance can establish a foundation on which public and private agencies can plan meaningful systemic reform--and spark incentives for greater, more effective investments in services directed to vulnerable families. The…

Dodge, Kenneth A.; Goodman, W. Benjamin – Future of Children, 2019

In this article, Kenneth A. Dodge and W. Benjamin Goodman describe Family Connects, a program…

Phelps, Michelle S. – Future of Children, 2018
The United States' high incarceration rate gets a lot of attention from scholars, policy makers, and the public. Yet the most common form of criminal justice supervision is not imprisonment but probation--and that is just as true for juveniles as for adults. Probation was originally promoted as an alternative to imprisonment that would spare…

Brunson, Rod K.; Pegram, Kashea – Future of Children, 2018
Young people's encounters with the criminal justice system generally begin with the police. Officers' decisions about how to handle these encounters are affected by their on-the-spot assessments of young people's proclivity for delinquency, prospects for rehabilitation, and overall moral character. And because most police-citizen interactions…

Schlesinger, Traci – Future of Children, 2018
In the context of juvenile justice, writes Traci Schlesinger, "diversion" can mean two things. Informal diversion includes police officers' decisions to warn and release, probation officers' decisions not to report violations, prosecutors' decisions not to prosecute, and judges' decisions to dismiss cases. Informal diversion sends youth…

Hirschfield, Paul J. – Future of Children, 2018
Children's school experiences may contribute in many ways to disproportionate minority contact with the juvenile justice system, writes Paul Hirschfield. For example, research shows that black students who violate school rules are more often subject to out-of-school suspensions, which heighten their risk of arrest and increase the odds that once…

Gregory, Anne; Fergus, Edward – Future of Children, 2017
Beginning as early as preschool, race and gender are intertwined with the way US schools mete out discipline. In particular, black students and male students are much more likely than others to be suspended or expelled--punishments that we know can hold them back academically. These disparities, and the damage they can cause, have driven recent…

McKown, Clark – Future of Children, 2017
In the push to boost young people's social and emotional learning (SEL), assessment has lagged behind policy and practice. We have few usable, feasible, and scalable tools to assess children's SEL. And without good assessments, teachers, administrators, parents, and policymakers can't get the data they need to make informed decisions about SEL.…

Greenberg, Mark T.; Domitrovich, Celene E.; Weissberg, Roger P.; Durlak, Joseph A. – Future of Children, 2017
Evidence-based social and emotional learning (SEL) programs, when implemented effectively, lead to measurable and potentially long-lasting improvements in many areas of children's lives.
