The Evolution of the Juvenile Court

Child Poverty And Inequality Securing A Better Future For Americas Children [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Evolution of the Juvenile Court by Barry C. Feld Book Summary:

A major statement on the juvenile justice system by one of America’s leading experts The juvenile court lies at the intersection of youth policy and crime policy. Its institutional practices reflect our changing ideas about children and crime control. The Evolution of the Juvenile Court provides a sweeping overview of the American juvenile justice system’s development and change over the past century. Noted law professor and criminologist Barry C. Feld places special emphasis on changes over the last 25 years—the ascendance of get tough crime policies and the more recent Supreme Court recognition that “children are different.” Feld’s comprehensive historical analyses trace juvenile courts’ evolution though four periods—the original Progressive Era, the Due Process Revolution in the 1960s, the Get Tough Era of the 1980s and 1990s, and today’s Kids Are Different era. In each period, changes in the economy, cities, families, race and ethnicity, and politics have shaped juvenile courts’ policies and practices. Changes in juvenile courts’ ends and means—substance and procedure—reflect shifting notions of children’s culpability and competence. The Evolution of the Juvenile Court examines how conservative politicians used coded racial appeals to advocate get tough policies that equated children with adults and more recent Supreme Court decisions that draw on developmental psychology and neuroscience research to bolster its conclusions about youths’ reduced criminal responsibility and diminished competence. Feld draws on lessons from the past to envision a new, developmentally appropriate justice system for children. Ultimately, providing justice for children requires structural changes to reduce social and economic inequality—concentrated poverty in segregated urban areas—that disproportionately expose children of color to juvenile courts’ punitive policies. Historical, prescriptive, and analytical, The Evolution of the Juvenile Court evaluates the author’s past recommendations to abolish juvenile courts in light of this new evidence, and concludes that separate, but reformed, juvenile courts are necessary to protect children who commit crimes and facilitate their successful transition to adulthood.

A Roadmap to Reducing Child Poverty

Child Poverty And Inequality Securing A Better Future For Americas Children [Pdf/ePub] eBook

A Roadmap to Reducing Child Poverty by National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine,Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education,Committee on National Statistics,Board on Children, Youth, and Families,Committee on Building an Agenda to Reduce the Number of Children in Poverty by Half in 10 Years Book Summary:

The strengths and abilities children develop from infancy through adolescence are crucial for their physical, emotional, and cognitive growth, which in turn help them to achieve success in school and to become responsible, economically self-sufficient, and healthy adults. Capable, responsible, and healthy adults are clearly the foundation of a well-functioning and prosperous society, yet America's future is not as secure as it could be because millions of American children live in families with incomes below the poverty line. A wealth of evidence suggests that a lack of adequate economic resources for families with children compromises these children's ability to grow and achieve adult success, hurting them and the broader society. A Roadmap to Reducing Child Poverty reviews the research on linkages between child poverty and child well-being, and analyzes the poverty-reducing effects of major assistance programs directed at children and families. This report also provides policy and program recommendations for reducing the number of children living in poverty in the United States by half within 10 years.

Teaching with Poverty in Mind

Child Poverty And Inequality Securing A Better Future For Americas Children [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Teaching with Poverty in Mind by Eric Jensen Book Summary:

In Teaching with Poverty in Mind: What Being Poor Does to Kids' Brains and What Schools Can Do About It, veteran educator and brain expert Eric Jensen takes an unflinching look at how poverty hurts children, families, and communities across the United States and demonstrates how schools can improve the academic achievement and life readiness of economically disadvantaged students. Jensen argues that although chronic exposure to poverty can result in detrimental changes to the brain, the brain's very ability to adapt from experience means that poor children can also experience emotional, social, and academic success. A brain that is susceptible to adverse environmental effects is equally susceptible to the positive effects of rich, balanced learning environments and caring relationships that build students' resilience, self-esteem, and character. Drawing from research, experience, and real school success stories, Teaching with Poverty in Mind reveals * What poverty is and how it affects students in school; * What drives change both at the macro level (within schools and districts) and at the micro level (inside a student's brain); * Effective strategies from those who have succeeded and ways to replicate those best practices at your own school; and * How to engage the resources necessary to make change happen. Too often, we talk about change while maintaining a culture of excuses. We can do better. Although no magic bullet can offset the grave challenges faced daily by disadvantaged children, this timely resource shines a spotlight on what matters most, providing an inspiring and practical guide for enriching the minds and lives of all your students.

Poverty, Inequality, and the Future of Social Policy

Child Poverty And Inequality Securing A Better Future For Americas Children [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Poverty, Inequality, and the Future of Social Policy by Katherine McFate,Roger Lawson,William Julius Wilson Book Summary:

"Extremely coherent and useful, this much needed volume is concerned with the current status of the poor in Western industrial states. Its closely linked essays allow comparisons between case studies and are often themselves cross-national comparisons....The essays also comment on the meaning of globalization for social policy." —Choice "Excellent and tightly integrated articles by a group of prominent international scholars....A timely and important book, which will surely become the basic reference point for all future research on inequality and social policy." —Contemporary Sociology The social safety net is under strain in all Western nations, as social and economic change has created problems that traditional welfare systems were not designed to handle. Poverty, Inequality, and the Future of Social Policy provides a definitive analysis of the conditions that are fraying the social fabric and the reasons why some countries have been more successful than others in addressing these trends. In the United States, where the poverty rate in the 1980s was twice that of any advanced nation in Europe, the social protection system—and public support for it—has eroded alarmingly. In Europe, the welfare system more effectively buffered the disadvantaged, but social expenditures have been indicted by many as the principal cause of high unemployment. Concluding chapters review the progress and goals of social welfare programs, assess their viability in the face of creeping economic, racial, and social fragmentation, and define the challenges that face those concerned with social cohesion and economic prosperity in the new global economy. This volume illuminates the disparate effects of government intervention on the incidence and duration of poverty in Western countries. Poverty, Inequality, and the Future of Social Policy is full of lessons for anyone who would look beyond the limitations of the welfare debate in the United States.

The Reluctant Welfare State

Child Poverty And Inequality Securing A Better Future For Americas Children [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Reluctant Welfare State by Bruce S. Jansson Book Summary:

Written in clear, lively prose and supported by Jannson's impeccable research, this highly respected book analyzes the evolution of the American welfare state from colonial times to present--not only covering three centuries of historical developments, but contemporary policies in the first years of the 21st century--and it places social policy in its political, cultural, and societal context. Using social policy history as a catalyst, Jansson invites students to think critically about issues, developments, and policies in prior eras and in contemporary society, and he inspires students to develop their own "policy identity." This book uniquely links social welfare policy to an empowerment perspective, showing how African Americans, Latinos, women, gays and lesbians, Asian Americans, Native Americans, the elderly, poor people, and other vulnerable populations, as well as social reformers, have achieved progressive reforms through policy advocacy. By making these powerful connections among historical events, current social welfare policy, and the profession of social work, Jannson illustrates how a deep understanding of the past can inform our present and future actions.

The Forgotten Half Revisited

Child Poverty And Inequality Securing A Better Future For Americas Children [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Forgotten Half Revisited by Samuel Halperin,Harold Howe (II) Book Summary:

The 10 papers in this report review what the United States has accomplished for late-adolescents and young adults in the past decade since publication of "The Forgotten Half." The consensus from the 15 authors is that many developments have not been encouraging. "Today's Forgotten Half: Still Losing Ground" (Samuel Halperin), a review of demographic and economic data, paints a generally discouraging picture of noncollege youth losing ground on a host of social and economic indexes. "Public Opinion and the Youth of America" (Daniel Yankelovich) sees the balance among important trends shifting toward the negative in education, governmental responses, moral values, and public attitudes toward youth. "The Changing American Family" (Carol Emig) examines how conditions and circumstances have changed for the American family. "Communities: Powerful Resources for America's Youth" (Martin J. Blank, Carol Steinbach) highlights initiatives at the community level that are of positive consequence for improving the lives of The Forgotten Half. "Youth and School Reform: From the Forgotten Half to the Forgotten Third" (Jack Jennings, Diane Stark Rentner) reports that more students do not end their education after high school, but those left behind face a bleaker future. "Postsecondary Education: Student Success, Not Just Access" (Lawrence E. Gladieux, Watson Scott Swail) argues the key to success is completion of postsecondary studies. "Preparing Youth for the World of Work" (Thomas Bailey, Vanessa Smith Morest) concludes that no strategy or policy change has caused a broad, consistent national movement. "Ten Years of Youth in Service to America" (Shirley Sagawa) focuses on development of service opportunities for students and young people. "Reflections on a Decade of Promoting Youth Development" (Karen Pittman, Merita Irby) offers suggestions to strengthen the insights and thrust of the youth development movement. "On the Horizon: America's Youth Face the New Century" (Harold Howe II) describes two main tasks to complete the youth agenda. A summary of the report is included. (YLB)
