Youth in Minnesota Correctional Facilities: Responses to the 2010 Minnesota Student Survey

Group: Minnesota Department of Public Safety Office of Justice Programs

Description

Twenty-four residential juvenile correctional facilities with onsite education programs also participated in the 2010 MSS. In this report, the responses from 584 youth in correctional facilities were compared to a same-sized sample of youth who took the MSS in mainstream schools. Students were matched to one another on their gender, age, race and Hispanic ethnicity. Comparing two “mirror image” groups of students helps to ensure that differences in survey responses are not attributable to demographic variables. Exploring differences between the two student groups can provide information on what challenges youth in correctional facilities are facing, and what targeted intervention efforts may alleviate their personal or situational difficulties. Similarly, areas in which survey responses are the same for both groups can illuminate protective factors all youth possess, or risk factors to which all youth are vulnerable.
