3 “Missouri Model” It has been successful for over the last 30 years It uses small facilities (housing between 10-30 youths) Highly trained and educated staff workers Rehabilitative and therapeutic models The recidivism rate of the youths in the Missouri System is fewer than 8% 1/3 return to the communities with a High School Diploma or GED One of the few states that help the youth build better paths Missouri’s State Prison Today

4 Before the significant changes to the Missouri Juvenile Justice System, kids where coming into this system and leaving worst then when they came in. Three boys were killed at the Boonville Training School in 1948 causing Missouri’s treatment of youth to come under national scrutiny. By the 1960s, Training Schools were overpopulated and did little in the way of rehabilitation. The Juvenile Justice Reform Act of 1995 was one of the most significant reform measures. Changes Made for a Better Future

5 Terrence Barkley: Missouri’s Teen Model

6 We believe that every state should try to adopt the Missouri Model It has shown so much success that it seems like a win-win situation It is saving money and providing teens with a rehabilitative approach rather than throwing them into prisons where they receive limited to no help at all There aren’t really any negative aspects of Missouri’s Juvenile Justice System Our overall grade of the Juvenile System would be an A- because even though the system seems so perfect, it would be nice to lower the 8% recidivism rate even more! Our Own Opinions
