Closing Youth Prisons
Since their opening in the U.S. 170 years ago, “reform schools” or “training schools” for delinquent youth – what I’ll call “youth prisons” – have been a deeply troubled government response to delinquency by young people.  Vincent Schiraldi, former Commissioner of New York City Probation and Director of Washington, DC’s juvenile justice agency, will discuss why it is time to envision a juvenile justice system that entirely abolishes the use of youth prisons in favor of community based programs for the majority of youth in trouble with the law, and small, home-like facilities for the few youth who need to be securely confined.
