From the Campaign for Youth Justice:

Today, The Annie E. Casey Foundation released its 2008 KIDS COUNT Data Book essay, “A Road Map for Juvenile Justice Reform.” The essay looks at the nearly 100,000 children confined to juvenile facilities on any given night in the United States and what can be done to reduce unnecessary and inappropriate detention and incarceration and increase opportunities for positive youth development and community safety. The essay is released in conjunction with the 2008 KIDS COUNT Data Book which gives national and state-by-state profiles of the well-being of America’s children through rankings on 10 key measures and information on the economic, health, education, and social conditions of America’s children and families.
