Rehabilitation in Juvenile Justice
Much scholarly debate centers on the basic ideology of rehabilitation in juvenile justice. Examine this basic belief in the juvenile system in terms of the historical aspects of rehabilitation of juveniles.
· What types of programs could be found during the “Progressive Era” of the 1920s?
· What vocations were trained for in the reform schools in America?
· Who made up the majority of delinquents in these training programs? What was the impact of these training programs on youth and society?
· How do the programs and juvenile system of the “Progressive Era” compare with your current understanding of juvenile programs and systems today?
· Your written paper should be 2-3 pages in length not counting the title and reference pages, which you must include.
· Use terms, evidence, and concepts from class readings.
· Cite at least three scholarly sources for this assignment. Scholarly resources include: peer-reviewed journal articles, books, the class textbook, or reports/documents from the government (.gov sites). A scholarly source does not include general sources from the internet (.com, .org, .edu, and .net sites are not scholarly). Scholarly resources should be current (no older than five years). If the class textbook is used as a source, then two other scholarly sources must be used.
