On December 8, 2014, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and the U.S. Department of Education  (DOE) jointly released guidance on correctional education for youth. Letters are being mailed to every superintendent in the country, all state attorney generals, and to the state heads of juvenile justice departments, as well as to any parent training centers funded by the DOE.
