JUVENILE INCARCERATION IN USA
Juvenile Incarceration In USA
In the previous weeks, I have been doing in-depth research on issues surrounding youth incarceration in the USA. I have submitted an annotated bibliography on my topic and this article be a continuation of the annotations required for the final project. My previous annotated bibliography feedback was excellent and here below are additional annotations which support my argument. The annotations are articulated to my topic albeit inclined towards finding a better solution to youth incarceration in the US through reducing juvenile recidivism and crime rate.
