VIII CONCLUSION AND SUMMARY
We must understand the purpose of this curriculum is to educate the unnurtured child and to provide useful resources for the offenders. With the public outcry for stronger penalties against juvenile offenders, politicians and law makers are satisfying society’s requests without focusing on the underlining causes for delinquent behavior. Incarcerated youth require an authentic adaptable curriculum, which will be able to reach students who have been truant from school for periods of time, variation of ages and levels, culturally deprived, and extremely unmotivated. We all prefer that none of this be deemed necessary, but that is sadly not the kind of world we can afford to live in today. In talking with my students, I discovered what the fear of nuclear war was to kids at my age; the fear of homeless, lack of love and violence, are to kids of today. With that in mind, this curriculum seeks to educate and thus empower incarcerated youth to desire a world of freedom. Hence, incarceration is another form of slavery.
