Title The faulty child welfare system is the real issue behind our youth justice crisis Degree of recognition International Media name/outlet The Conversation Media type Web Country/Territory Australia Date 13/02/17 Description ABSTRACT:
Somewhere along the way, many vulnerable children in state care turn to crime. How this happens and what can be done about it are two of the most important crime-prevention questions facing society. Policymakers are reluctant to acknowledge the care system is producing criminals. This is despite abundant research showing children become involved in crime through the processes of the care environment itself.
