The A.L. Burruss Institute of Public Service and Research at Kennesaw State University in Georgia has invited the JJIE to submit two questions about juvenile justice for a nationwide poll.
Here’s a chance to measure the public’s opinion on any number of important matters impacting our youth today, from program funding, to crime, to education.
It’s a big issue, juvenile justice, too big to be covered in two questions.
So we’re forced to whittle it down.
Are you interested in helping? Want to formulate a question for possible inclusion in the poll? If so, let us know on Facebook, Twitter or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also leave us a comment below.
Try to keep it short. If, for example, you are interested in knowing the nation’s mood when it comes to charging children as adults and their chances for parole, try asking, “Should all juveniles who are sentenced as adults have a chance at parole sometime in their life?”
We are fortunate to have Burruss as a partner in this effort. The folks there are professionals at this, so they will help word the questions in a way that the respondents will clearly understand. The Institute is also familiar with our kind of organization and our needs. After all, the mission of Burruss is to, “enhance the ability of governmental agencies and non-profit organizations to make informed decisions for the public good by providing relevant data, technical resources and skill development.”
As soon as Burruss gets the results in we'll report them here at JJIE.org.
