I've taught in the juvenile justice system and observed that most of them are throw-away kids who are not cared for in any way by anyone.  One reform in society should be changing the fact of throw-away kids. The one reform in the juvenile justice system I believe is important and which is still changing is the idea that juveniles at very young ages can or cannot be tried in adult court for their crimes.  The debate still continues over when juveniles give up their rights to juvenile court and can be moved to adult court, but just the fact that this reform is being discussed on every level of justice makes this a sweeping reform despite its fluid status.
