It has always baffled me how the Government and advisors of such continually try to "fix" things that aren't broken. In this I mean closing or eliminating facilities or programs that actually "Work" instead of those that don't. Its almost as if the people who actually make such things possible are being penalized for doing an outstanding job. I understand the mindset of supporting the under-dog but in this case the under-dog needing the support (and excellence of Taft's dedicated employees)are the young men who end up in Taft as the last chance before entering general population of the ADULT correctional facility. Has Ms. O'Day crunched those numbers? I haven't researched the statistics but it seems from everything I have read here that Taft has the highest REHABILITATION success rates of any juvenile facility in Tennessee. Is that not the goal once these boys are in the system, rehabilitation? From the information stated in this article and comments posted, Taft is not the broken cog in this financial machine and "if it ain't broke, don't fix it."
