Dept of Juvenile Corrections- more funding
I don't know how many Juvenile offenders become adult offenders. It seems if the state of idaho were to invest "trades" training in DJC, this might prevent recidivism. Give these kids some skills that empower them to be successful once released. Can the DJC partner with AmeriCorps? Maybe prior to their release, they spend time at AmeriCorps for lifeskills, with the feds paying the bills.

maybe we could give the parents the ability to disiplian their kids when they are younger without fear of going to jail by a out of control state agency and maybe prevent the kids from being future delinquents in the first place.
