Strategies That Keep Teenagers’ Lives on Track
Those are some of the questions that will be asked Monday at an all-day symposium on the Johns Hopkins Medical Campus called “Squandered Resources: Incarceration--Its Consequences, Costs, and Alternatives.”
One of the panelists at the symposium will be sociologist Kathryn Edin. She’s a noted poverty researcher and distinguished professor at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Sheilah Kast talks with her about her research on disadvantaged Baltimore youth.
