week 3 discussion 74

This week’s focus was on schools and the problems related to juvenile crime in and around schools.

  • Are parents and school management playing a suitable role to control increasing school violence? If not, what else can they do to help solve the problem of school violence?
  • What suggestions would you propose to bring about a change in the juvenile justice system to ensure that existing juvenile offenders do not return to the community and repeat the crimes they have committed?
  • Aside from the official juvenile “system,” most communities offer separate community-based programs that are intended to benefit children and adolescents. How effective are these programs at steering kids away from crime? You might look at Big Brothers/Big Sisters, scouting groups, or Boys and Girls Clubs.
