A 5586

Concerns juvenile incarceration and parole

A5586 (Wimberly, Quijano, Reynolds-Jackson) NJEA believes that policies towards juveniles must prioritize rehabilitation, education, intervention, and transition strategies.  By emphasizing a positive value system, problem-solving skills, and accountability, schools and communities can work together to promote positive personal growth and strengthen self-sufficiency.  This bill moves towards achieving these goals by integrating several reforms into the juvenile justice system.  By revising many old, outdated, and biased rules, New Jersey can become a leader in ensuring that the next generation has a chance to learn from mistakes, rather than being subject to a lifelong struggle with the justice system.

NJEA urges you to SUPPORT A5586
