About this institute . . .
The National Center on Secondary Education and Transition (NCSET) hosted a Capacity Building Institute on Youth in the Juvenile Justice System: Perspectives on Serving Young Offenders with Disabilities: Litigating and Organizing Systemic Change, on October 12, 2003, at the Ramada Thunderbird in Bloomington, MN.
NCSET staff designed this institute in response to research and practice wisdom attesting to the dramatic and persistent overrepresentation of youth with disabilities in the juvenile justice system. The institute was designed to promote discussion and innovative methodologies for addressing the individual needs of these young people while also striving for change in social policy to benefit incarcerated youth.
The one-day institute provided an opportunity for key stakeholders in education, juvenile justice, and medicine to examine policies and common practices in the juvenile justice system.
In the following proceedings you will find the institute agenda, an overview of the institute’s purpose, a brief summary of the institute, and biographical information for the presenters.
