  1. (A TWO-PAGE ESSAY)

    Nationwide Gang-related programs and school bullying programs have failed because they do not possess a law education segment.

    Given the fundamental place of law in the American society, every citizen needs to know how the legal and political systems function, how the law affects them, and how they can affect it.

    My book, which is entitled, “How to Raise Your Children to Stay Out of Gangs and Prisons”, is an educational law book that has been reviewed and approved by the California Department of Education, for ‘legal content’ and ‘social compliance’. It can be used as a ‘reference’ or ‘resource’ book in grades 4th through 12th. Also, the book meets and fulfills the California Department of Education’s State Standards in grades 4th and 12th (Standard 1.0 and 2.0: “Reading”) and (Standard 12.10: ‘Rules of Law”).

    “How to Raise Your Children to Keep Them Out of Gangs and Prisons,” is a book/program that can be used for Prevention, Intervention or Rehabilitation by teaching our young people that for every action there is a repercussion, and ultimately, a consequence.

    The book/program provides students, educators, police and probation departments, and family/community organizations, with opportunities to develop the knowledge and understanding, skills, attitudes and appreciations necessary to respond effectively to the law and legal issues in our complex and changing society.

    In line with this definition, central ideas of Law Education in my book/program, pertain to why certain legal procedures have been established and how they work. For example, the “Three Strikes Law” and “Proposition Twenty-One”, whose selected elements are use by all states, are fully explained in layman’s terms.(1)

    A study conducted by the Social Science Education Consortium and the Center for Action Research indicated that a Law-Related program, when properly conducted can reduce tendencies toward delinquent behavior and improve range of attitudes related to responsible citizenship (Little and Haley 1982).

    Students that use my book are less likely to associate with delinquent peers, use violence as a means of resolving conflict and/or repeat their criminal behavior.

    Sources of law, functions of law, legal authority, and freedom are essential elements of the any social studies curriculum, ‘school bullying’, gang-related’ and/or rehabilitative’ programs.

    A key component of my struggle with schools, police and probation departments, family/community organizations, churches, and public figures and public officials, is the sharing of my knowledge and information pertaining to the how both the Juvenile Justice and Criminal Justice Systems really work; emphases on probationers and their families; the ‘hazards’ of gang membership; identification of information-sharing needs; and coordination of resources.

    MY LIFE AND TEACHING EXPERIENCES PROVIDES ME WITH KNOWN RESOURCES AND OPPORTUNITY TO BETTER COMPREHEND THE MANY PROBLEMS THAT ‘AT-RISK’ AND ‘INCARCERATED’ MINORS FACE!!

    MY BOOK CONTAINS LEGAL INFORMATION THAT IS NOT TAUGHT IN SCHOOLS!!
