A Study of the Institutional and Parole Adjustment of Five Boys Who Were Committed to Lincoln Hall in 1846 From Bronx Children's Court
This dissertation comprises a study of five boys who were committed to Lincoln Hall in 1946, and their institutional and parole adjustment. This chapter forms an approach to the research and discusses the foci and the methods to be utilized in carrying out its purposes. Background and importance of the Study» Juvenile Delinquency is the subject of much research today, and rightly so. It is an all—too- common occurrence to read the daily newspapers and find therein the sad story of another crime committed by some youth still in his teens. What should be regarded as the best years of one’s life, today are marked by these incidents which are frequently the stepping stones to further and more serious crimes. The writer uses the word "serious" only in its relation to the offender. For an act that is committed by a youth one week and treated as delinquency may, if committed by the same person after he has passed the statutory age barrier, be regarded as a crime and treated as such.
