"An important book at an important time." —Choice "Remarkable and sobering. . . . Educators, policymakers, and advocates all should find this book as motivating as it is disturbing: for every reason it gives to despair about the current system, it also reveals a pathway toward a far less populated system of juvenile justice, one that actually helps children rather than harms them."—Daniel Losen, co-author ofThe School-to-Prison Pipeline: Structuring Legal Reform Children and youth become involved with the juvenile justice system at a significant rate. While some children move just as quickly out of the system and go on to live productive lives as adults, other children become enmeshed in the system, developing deeper problems and at times introduced into the adult criminal justice system.Justice for Kidsis a volume edited by leading academics and activists that focuses on ways to intervene at the earliest possible point to rehabilitate and redirect—to keep kids out of the system—rather than to punish and drive kids deeper. In theFamilies, Law, and Societyseries Contributors: Shay Bilchik, Brian R.
