I was pleasantly surprised that my visit to detention camps for juvenile girls run by the Los Angeles Probation Department turned out to be encouraging and uplifting. Instead of finding a cadre of angry and hostile girls in a punitive prison setting, I saw clean classrooms attended by very normal-looking, unusually engaged students taught by caring teachers promoting the message … Read More The post COMMENTARY 970.2: A Government Program That Is Working appeared first on What Will Matter.
