Sept. 14, 2016
UF College of Education Associate Professor Joe Gagnon weighed in on the City of Gainesville’s new partnership with the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice in which youth held in juvenile detention will work to enhance a city park. Gagnon, who specializes in researching the needs of youth who are incarcerated or in treatment facilities, was quoted in a story by WUFT.org saying the partnership “is a great idea, but if you’re really looking to impact these kids—give them an education and give them mental health services.”
