“This blog is the best site about juvenile justice reform on the Internet. It has all the latest news stories and links to almost every major independent study on the trend from juvenile jails to community based alternatives to incarceration.” –Eddie Borges, director of communications, New York Office of Children and Family Services

It’s great. It gives a comprehensive and accurate snapshot of juvenile justice across the nation, and features links to articles about what’s happening now in America. Definitely worth checking out.” –Connecticut Juvenile Justice Alliance

“It’s a bright and informative new contributor to our deliberations, especially as they apply to the need to do something smart at the juvenile level so we can stop doing so many counterproductive things at the adult level. Check them out and add them to your bookmarks. They should be daily reading.” –Michael Connelly, Corrections Sentencing blog
