R. Daniel Okonkwo, executive director of D.C. Lawyers for Youth, a juvenile-justice reform advocate, acknowledged the talent drain at DYRS and the need to hold the agency accountable, but said his group is satisfied with the direction under Mr. Stanley.
"Holding adults accountable is [important], but in this town we focus too much on the bad things instead of what's good for the kids," Mr. Okonkwo said. "I don't know about the metrics for personnel review and I'm not going to look behind the curtain."
