On any given night in the U.S., there are approximately 60,500 youth confined in juvenile correctional facilities or other residential programs. Photographer Richard Ross has spent the past five years criss-crossing the country photographing the architecture, cells, classrooms and inhabitants of these detention sites.

Anyone else think that it would be far more effective, far cheaper, and far more worthwhile to hire some proper psychologists to take each kid to somewhere like Pakistan for a week?
Books are only permitted in the classrooms, not in the cells.
Juvenile Detention Facility, Greenville, Washington County, Mississippi.
When Ross visited only 35 of the 137 beds were occupied. The population had decreased significantly because of the embrace of the principles of the Juvenile Detention Alternatives Initiative and the leadership of Judge Edwards.
