Education is freedom

This article is an example of the type of prison reform we need more of to improve our massive investment in prisons.

The difference between a college degree and high school degree is $1 million in income over an individual’s life. If one has $1 million more in their pockets throughout life, perhaps they wouldn’t turn to crime to fulfill their needs.

CA has seen stagnant educational attainment over the past 40 years. Compare this graphic with CA’s bulging prison rates and it becomes apparent by investing less in education we’ve doomed ourselves into investing more in prisons. Autonomy rebuffs criminality and education is a surefire way to produce autonomy in life.
