Out of Education Mainstream
U.S. Departments of Justice and Education have developed a joint initiative
to address the needs of youth who are truant, drop-out, expelled or suspended
from school, afraid to go to school because of violence or fear of violence,
or need to be reintegrated into school from a juvenile justice setting.
"Youth Out of the Education Mainstream" will help communities work together
more effectively and efficiently by promoting local community partnerships
to develop prevention and intervention strategies.
Wednesday, October 30, 1996, OJJDP broadcast a national satellite teleconference
on three components of the "Youth Out of the Education Mainstream" initiative:
truancy, dropping out, and reintegration of youth from a juvenile facility
into a mainstream education setting. The broadcast will showcase effective
and promising programs that give these youth the opportunity to turn their
lives around and become productive members of society. The programs' directors
and practitioners will answer questions during a call-in portion of the
broadcast. The teleconference also provided information on how to receive
resource publications and training materials
use in your own community.
