No juvenile delinquent left behind
Preventing problems is usually much cheaper than fixing them after the fact. (Just ask a sea turtle in the Gulf of Mexico… if you can find one still breathing.)
California spends $216,000 annually on each inmate in the juvenile justice system. In contrast, it spends only $8,000 on each child attending the troubled Oakland public school system.
