Re-entry Roadmap: A 25 Point Strategy Toward Restoration

Ohio Department of Youth Services to undergo changes for "juvenile parolees."

The state's juvenile prisons are trying to develop a better way to prepare youths for life after their release because about half are locked up again within three years.

Providing the youths more job training, help finding employment and mentors to offer advice are among the planned changes at the Department of Youth Services, according to a report released Monday.

Snarky comment to follow...
You mean you can't just turn a juvenile offender loose and expect them to magically turn into a good citizen?!?!?! I'm shocked! Shocked, I tell you!

Oh...and my favorite headline..."
State to try new ideas to reduce youth prison recidivism
REALLY? NEW ideas?!?!?! Again, I'm shocked!!!
End of snarky comment.
