This literature review provides a demographic snapshot of literacy challenges for youth in conflict with the law in Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States. It also includes a review of available literacy programming and research on the intersection of youth, justice and literacy in those three countries.
The authors hope to spark critical discussion regarding available programming; the comprehensiveness of current long-term studies; measurements of programming success; and promising practices and future planning for effective and measurable programming in Canada.
This review is a companion document to a discussion paper the authors have written on the same topic, which can be viewed here: http://library.nald.ca/item/10431. Both documents are published by Frontier College, a national literacy organization.
