Young people who have been charged with or adjudicated of a crime and are now living in a juvenile justice facility may have greater emotional and behavioral needs, but recent data shows that these students often receive fewer academic opportunities and educational supports than their peers who are not in confinement.

The Education Week Research Center analysis of recent federal civil rights data, reveals that the opportunities in these facilities vary greatly.
