Illiteracy And Juvenile Delinquency
[ send me this paper ]
10 pages in length. The notion that illiteracy is directly associated with the incidence of juvenile delinquency has received significant consideration within the psychological and educational communities. Clearly, if an individual does not possess the ability to read or write, the mere act of obtaining – much less advancing in – a good job is out of reach. Additionally, the basics of life represent the utmost frustration and anger, such as understanding simple directions or being self-motivated, which ultimately leads to a significant sense of failure. Combine that with the social stigma inherently associated with illiteracy, and this creates one considerably maladjusted youth whose inability to read and write breeds hopelessness and juvenile delinquency. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

Impact of Juvenile Detention Centers

There are both pros and cons to the impact of juvenile detention centers on youths. Although some young people get a mere slap on the wrist for their delinquent/criminal behavior, others can get the death penalty at an early age in some states. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

Juvenile Crime and The Sealed Record
[ send me this paper ]
A short, 3 page argument about how the juvenile justice system is failing and youthful offenders are not being deterred from committing more crimes. The writer argues that a 15 year-old delinquent should share many of the same penalties for committing an offense that a 22 year-old delinquent would for committing the same offense. Most important to the discussion is the idea that a juvenile's record should not be "hidden" after they've reached adulthood. Individual members of society should be able to make judgments based on someone's entire record and then determine whether or not crimes of their childhood are worthy of special attention.

Juvenile Delinquency & The Home Social Environment
[ send me this paper ]
In 12 pages the author writes 2 chapters on the topic of juvenile delinquency and the home/social environment. The introductory of the paper states: "The issue of juvenile delinquency and the home/social environment is one of major concern to families, schools, law enforcement agencies and society as a whole. There has been an influx of juvenile delinquents in today's society, ranging from those who are involved in truancy, to gang activity, to those who are convicted murderers. Juvenile delinquency is prevalent across the nation. There is not one certain paradigm of pedagogy for this occurrence. Juvenile delinquency is cross-cultural and cross-racial. It does not know any restrictions on socio-economic class or religion. When measured by official statistics, the problem of juvenile delinquency is staggering. In an attempt to address the issue of juvenile delinquency in the home/social environment, the focus of juvenile delinquency has been directed at the home of the individual and the social environment in which he exists. This is done in order to better understand the causes behind the delinquent behavior of the individual." Bibliography lists 8 sources.

Juvenile Gangs.
[ send me this paper ]
(6 pp) Generally, for purposes of this discussion, a gang can be considered to be a loosely organized group of individuals who collaborate together for social reasons.

A gang claims group identity through "their colors", certain types of clothing, tattoos, brands, or other gang ID. Many gangs also adopt certain types of hairstyles and communicate through the use of hand signals and graffiti on walls, streets, school work, and school property. It should be acknowledged, that, it is not illegal to be in a gang, and indeed many adults are currently involved in activities that meet Webster's definition for a gang. However, many gangs of today, especially youthful gangs, break the law to provide funding for gang activities or to further the gang's territory, or reputation on "the streets."

One size fits all? NOT!
[ send me this paper ]
(6pp) I thought of her one-size-fits all story when we were talking about "zero tolerance." If this were not a school paper, I would just say that it "sucks," and leave it at that, because I think that the zero tolerance policy is similar to that one size fits all shirt deal. I can understand that parents have been freaked out by all the violence stuff that has been on the news and at other schools. It is a scary thing. I agree with that. I do not think that guns or alcohol belong in school, but our school handbook says that there will be "zero tolerance" for "unacceptable behavior; disrespect to staff," or guns. Anybody who needs to bring a gun to school has zero brain cells - so they should get into trouble for that Bibliography lists 3 sources.

Probation For (Juvenile) Status Offenders
[ send me this paper ]
"Status offenders" are juveniles convicted of crimes that would not be considered such if they were adults. For example, running away from home, truancy, etc.; are all considered to be criminal activities only by juvenile courts. This 6 page research paper analyzes the controversy surrounding the penalties given to status offenders and the likelihood that probation will become the most viable answer to the problem. The opinions of reputed caseworkers are cited to evidence the idea that while harsher sentences for status offenders must be ruled out, the lack of some penalty is unacceptable and therefore, probation-style programs are the most likely answer to the problem. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

Sentencing of Juvenile Criminal as Adults
[ send me this paper ]
( 5 pp) Sentencing youth to incarceration can never be the sole solution to delinquency and crime. However, public fears about juvenile delinquency and crime have escalated in recent years, boosted in part by a handful of headline-grabbing incidents that foster stereotypes of young people as out of control. It is not as though these incidents do not happen, sadly they do. However, the doubt which it engenders in society's mind concerning its youth is equally damaging. One proposed solution is to sentence and incarcerate juveniles as adults. Bibliography lists 8 sources.
