Samenvatting

The reform of criminals and potential digressors has been the object of politicians’ and policy makers’ concern for over a century. Interventions and preventative efforts to achieve this, are these days scrutinized by committees of learned men and women for their ‘evidence-based’ effectiveness. This article will attempt to analyse the effectiveness of one such early intervention effort in the Netherlands, where from the start of the 20th century onwards children were re-educated in steeply increasing numbers with the aim of preventing them from falling prey to lives of crime and vice.
