Rethinking the Role of the Juvenile Justice System: Improving Youth’s School Attendance and Educational Outcomes

Justice Center: The Council of State Governments


Over the last decade, states and counties have reconsidered many of the ways that juvenile justice systems have traditionally operated. Yet most jurisdictions have not questioned whether the system should take on education-related responsibilities and hold youth accountable if they fail to comply.

This brief summarizes key findings from an unprecedented research study conducted by The Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center on the impact of juvenile justice system involvement—particularly probation— on school attendance in South Carolina and challenges jurisdictions across the country—as well as the broader field—to reconsider whether system involvement is the most appropriate and effective way to promote youth’s school success.
