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.)

So why are we waiting till kids are totally screwed up before helping them?

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.
