  • How to Teach a Delinquent

    Once sent to “training schools ,” or other reform institutions, most delinquents become social casualties. They are denied serious programs of education or rehabilitation and are thrust into the company of older and more violent criminal types. A rare exception to this pattern, the Warrendale school near Pittsburgh, is described by Nicolas Hahn, a Swarthmore graduate who earned her master’s degree in education at Harvard, taught English to schoolchildren in Athens, Greece, and lives with her teacher husband at the Rosemary Hall School in Connecticut.
