  • Product Description

    Abstract:
    The latest in a long string of directors of New York City's toughest juvenile detention facility confronts a staff which is both demoralized and resentful of authority. As the jail's first black director, she must cope with a predominantly black staff long accustomed to "getting over"--giving less than full effort and rationalizing its attitude in terms of the perceived indifference of a "downtown" white power structure. Battles over child abuse, insubordination and union power ensue.

    Learning Objective:
    This case examines NYC's toughest juvenile detention facilities.
