Concerns juvenile incarceration and parole
S2511 (Pou) 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 personal growth and strengthen self-sufficiency. This legislation moves towards achieving these goals by accelerating the implementation of reforms to the juvenile justice system signed into law by Governor Murphy in January. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, enacting these reforms immediately will remove unnecessary obstacles to the successful rehabilitation of juveniles, while also protecting the health and safety of the juveniles and their communities.
NJEA urges you to SUPPORT S 2511.
