The New Press - "Burning Down the House" by Nell Bernstein, 27 Feb 2014 [cached]
Burning Down the House Beyond Juvenile Prison | Nell Bernstein | A heartbreaking and meticulously reported indictment of our nation’s failed juvenile justice policy, by the award-winning journalist and advocate | Burning Down the House: Beyond Juvenile Prison A heartbreaking and meticulously reported indictment of our nation’s failed juvenile justice policy, by the award-winning journalist and advocate The New Press - "Burning Down the House" by Nell Bernstein

The White House honors [Nell Bernstein] for [her] dedication to the well-being of children of incarcerated parents.
But when Brian got into it on the court, he and his rival were sprayed in the face at close range by a chemical similar to Mace, denied a shower for twenty-four hours, then locked in solitary confinement for a month.
One in three American schoolchildren will be arrested by the time they are twenty-three and many will spend time locked inside horrific detention centers that fly in the face of everything we know about how to rehabilitate young offenders. In a clear-eyed indictment of the juvenile justice system run amok, award-winning journalist Nell Bernstein shows that there is no right way to lock up a child. The very act of isolation denies delinquent children the thing that is most essential to their growth and rehabilitation: positive relationships with caring adults.
Bernstein introduces us to youth who have suffered violence and psychological torture at the hands of the state. Too many will never recover from the experience, creating a cycle that leaves the public less safe, not more so. Bernstein presents them all as fully realized people, not victims. As they describe in their own voices their fight to maintain their humanity and protect their individuality in environments that would deny both, the young people offer a hopeful alternative to the doomed effort to reform a system that should only be dismantled.
Burning Down the House is a clarion call to shut down our nation's brutal and counterproductive juvenile prisons and bring our children home.
