Survey Shows Strong Support for Juvenile Rehabilitation
October 25, 2011 | Publication | Juvenile Justice

Findings from a 1,000 person national survey about adults’ attitudes on juvenile services showed strong support for a  system realigned around rehabilitation.  Four out of five adults in the survey thought judges should be in charge of transfers; and three out of four believe juvenile offenders should be approached with the idea that they are highly capable of positive growth.  The survey was commissioned by the Campaign for Youth Justice, a grantee of MacArthur’s Models for Change juvenile justice reform initiative.
