Students who enter the juvenile-justice system are significantly less likely to graduate from high school, and a new online report offers a roadmap for states to make sure incarcerated students get back on track academically.

The Legal Center for Youth Justice and Education, a collaboration of child-advocacy groups, lays out goals to support incarcerated students and highlights promising state practices, in an interactive report.

Among the recommendations: help students stay informed about their education options; provide adult academic support before, during, and after incarceration; and return students to their previous school after returning from incarceration.
