Anthony Platt: The Triumph of Benevolence: What Did Anthony Platt Suggest Was the Real Purpose of the Child Saving Movement?

The public school students who use the Apex system are given unique login usernames and passwords, exactly like email or other social networking accounts (NEV. REV. STAT. § 209.417(3)). From the Apex website, students take online courses to fulfill Advanced Placement credits, make up lost credits, or pursue extra credits for early graduation. Additionally, Nevada’s public schools, at certain grade levels, require participation in Internet-based dynamic assessments known as Smarter Balanced Assessments. These assessments are responsive, relying on students’ answers to determine appropriate follow-up questions. This feature works to remediate any gaps in learning students may experience and “provides a more accurate indicator for teachers, students, and parents as they work to meet the rigorous demands of college and career readiness.” Of course, like the Apex learning system, access to the Smarter Balanced Assessment requires access to the Internet. In juvenile detention centers, pursuant to NRS 209.417, students are prohibited from having access to the online programs used in their public schools (APEX LEARNING VIRTUAL SCH).
A new 40th anniversary edition will be published in 2009 by Rutgers University Press. Drawing upon various critiques of The Child Savers and recent historiography on its subject matter, I revisit the following issues: the significance of the Progressive Era as the starting point of juvenile justice history; limitations of the ‘social control’ perspective; the inter-relationship of class, race, gender, and juvenile justice; the need for comparative and global perspectives on juvenile justice; and a reconsideration of the legacies of neo-liberalism. The article calls for a new round of revisionist scholarship on juvenile justice.
