Education and Interagency Collaboration: A Lifeline for Justice-Involved Youth

The Center for Juvenile Justice Reform has released “Education and Interagency Collaboration: A Lifeline for Justice-Involved Youth.” This issue brief focuses on the importance of collaboration between policymakers and educators to address the educational needs of youth at risk of entering, or involved in, the juvenile justice system. The brief reviews research on education for system-involved youth and details recent efforts to improve educational outcomes for this population. The authors also highlight the Washington Education Advocate Program, a school-based transition program to bridge the education achievement gap for youth involved in the juvenile justice system in the state of Washington.
