The American Youth Policy Forum (AYPF) has released a new brief around the utilization of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) to enhance education in juvenile justice facilities. This publication provides state and local policymakers, as well as education and juvenile justice leaders, with information about how they can use requirements under ESSA to improve education and workforce outcomes for youth in long-term juvenile justice facilities and programs. The brief summarizes relevant ESSA provisions and requirements, highlights priority areas, and features states that are carrying out innovative practices in each priority area.
