It reports an experiment in contingency management under which students were given positive reasons for behaving well with respect to each other and for studying and learning. It was not easy to construct such an environment. Indeed the practical problems were often staggering. But solutions were found, in part with the help of the art which springs from a humane concern for people and in part through the application of a technology derived from a science of behavior. The result- the CASE project at the National Training School for Boys - may well take its place as a landmark in penal reform.
