In an hour-long special airing this Sunday night at 10pm ET, “Kids Behind Bars: Soledad O’Brien Special Report,” Al Jazeera America was given extensive access inside a once-notorious juvenile lock-up in New Mexico where the state is now trying something new: offering education, counseling and maybe even a second chance for juvenile offenders. The reforms are part of a 2009 settlement with the ACLU following a lawsuit accusing the state juvenile centers of failing to protect the health, mental and physical safety of offenders.
