Juvenile Justice Budget Dollars and Cents

So if the Department of Juvenile Justice isn't working as it should be right now, what can be done to fix it? Is the merger with DCFS enough? How much money is needed and where is it going to come from?

Joining us to discuss the dollars and cents of juvenile justice are two people with a long histories of advocating for improvements to the system. Betsy Clarke is the founder and president of the Juvenile Justice Initiative. Jerry Stermer is past president of Voices for Illinois Children, and now chief of staff for Governor Pat Quinn.
