In the October/November 2012 issue of Juvenile Justice Update, Marion Mattingly interviewed Jeffrey Butts about juvenile justice policy, practice, research, and the status of innovation across the country. From the interview: “I think in the future, just from economics alone, we will have a lot more public-private partnerships. The job of the government should be to support and manage contracts with private providers—not to deliver all services. Of course, there should also be really strict rules and regular monitoring of private programs.”
