Road to Success Academies Implementation Study

LA County Juvenile Court School System

Researchers and policymakers in Los Angeles county give too little attention to education strategies that can change the trajectories of juveniles in corrections. Working with the Los Angeles County Office of Education’s (LACOE) Juvenile Court Schools System and the Probation Department, CTS is undertaking an exploratory study on learning and education quality in the juvenile justice camps through the eyes of the students themselves. Our study includes youth enrolled in the new Road to Success Academy (RTSA), an award-winning model of instruction and intervention for incarcerated youth.
