Description

The Rhode Island Months reports on training schools for juvenile offenders. The schools attempt to put kids back on the right track with mandatory education, helping kids learn how to learn when they have blown off or been blown off by school. GED scores that are well above passing is what happens when "you get them away from all the bullshit in their lives and they can focus on education," one teacher says. The recidivism rate is still around 30 percent, though. Each kids cots taxpayers about $80,000 a year to house at the schools.
