My name is Alazia wilson and i am a senior at Carman-Ainsworth High School,MI. One of the most pressing issues in the united states right now is juvenile incarceration.There are many flaws in the juvenile system such as, putting kids in juve because they have behavior issues or they tried to run away from home.
This affects me and the kids that are incarcerated because their are a numerous of youth that are nonviolent who haven’t received the proper education, so when they are released they wouldn’t have the acquired skills to function, because they spent almost their whole life in a cell. They should get the proper education, so when they go to school they wouldn’t have such a hard time and they won’t be so behind of their classes.
We should provide the youth with behavior counseling instead of throwing them in a cell for some years because of that. kids who are under 18 and are in there whole life because they have a behavior issue and that’s not okay because kids who are younger than 18 are in an unsafe environment.
The president should consider on making better choices when dealing with the youth that are incarcerated, such as giving them better education and better food choices for them such as healthy foods so they won’t get sick. And have kids that have behavior issues to go to a detention centers, encourage kids to make a better life for themselves. They should be provided with a safe and clean place to think and learn.
