Returning to Life: How to Help 'Troubled' Teens Get a Fresh Start and Integrate into Society

Some children who don’t go to school and commit crimes manage to reintegrate into society by learning new mores and lifestyles. But others only appear to adapt, becoming ‘outsiders’ again the minute they leave the school grounds, going back to the same risky life on the streets.

The study has been published by SSRN.
