Two major issues facing the juvenile justice education field today are teacher attrition and promoting quality educational staff and services for youth who are neglected or delinquent. Educators and juvenile justice professionals often agree that teacher attrition has the potential to limit the educational experiences of students, restrict student achievement, and be extremely costly to systems with very little return. Furthermore, it is widely accepted that teacher quality has a direct correlation with the success of schools in meeting the needs of a diverse student body. This Webinar provided practical strategies, constructive examples, and recent research on ways your system might attract, select, prepare, and retain quality juvenile justice educators.
