Comprehensive Data About Protecting the Civil Rights of Students in the Juvenile Justice System
This publication highlights data that informs the Office of Civil Right’s understanding of the education programs for youth in confinement across the United States. The data from the 2014-2014 school year was reported by justice facilities to the Civil Rights Data Collection and summarized in this report. Despite needing more academic, emotional, and behavioral supports, students in confinement often receive less support than their community-based peers. The data is categorized by race/ethnicity, gender, and subjects available.
