Introducing the “Blueprint for Change: Education Success for Youth in the Juvenile Justice System”

In May, the Legal Center for Youth Justice and Education (LCYJE) launched a new website that will serve as a dynamic, interactive tool to improve the educational and life outcomes of youth involved with the juvenile justice system. 

On June 27, 2017 at 2pm, SJP Executive Director Claire Blumenson will join LCYJE as a presenter for an introductory webinar on Blueprint for Change: Education Success for Youth in the Juvenile Justice System. This comprehensive resource outlines 10 goals to achieve education success for youth who are in the juvenile justice system. In addition to the goals that are the pillars of this framework, the Blueprint includes benchmarks that help measure progress towards those goals, as well as hundreds of examples of programs, legislation, resources, policies and practices in place across the country that seek to remove barriers and improve youth’s education success. Presenters include: 

  • Kate Burdick, Juvenile Law Center 
  • Whiquitta Tobar, Juvenile Law Center 
  • Maura McInerney, Education Law Center-PA 
  • Claire Nilsen Blumenson, Esq., Executive Director & Co-Founder, School Justice Project
