Do you think increasing education funding would decrease prison populations and funding?

Thank you all for your comments. Does anybody have any thoughts on what could bring down prison pops and cost. It just bothers me that they spend soo much $ a year per prisoner. Last time I looked up the # it was a out $30,000 per here in Nevada. Which was more than then the average annual income here. How is that possible?

No because education funding has increased dramatically over the last few decades as well as prison populations.

I don't think so because I don't have faith in the for-profit prison system.

If it were a matter of funding, crime would have disappeared by now.

No, people think throwing money at things fix problems, doesn't work

Thank you. I'm trying very hard to be informed. I thought this app could help. I don't want to be someone who spits out crap on social media I didn't even take the time to research.

I meant prison COSTS. I I haven't figured out how to edit a poll once it's published. Oopsie. Wish they had more tech geared education in the 90's.
