A Debate About Juvenile Justice Corrections

How would Texas’ candidate for governor prepare for a debate about juvenile justice corrections?

Assume you are an advisor to one of Texas’ candidates for governor. You will prepare the candidate for a debate about juvenile justice corrections. He will be asked the following: “About 600 Texas youth are trapped in a juvenile justice system on the brink of collapse.” How will you prepare the candidate’s response? What topics exemplify the collapse of the system? What is the Texas juvenile justice system doing right? Use two examples of each (collapse, success). Be specific.
