“You can lead a horse to water, but it is probably crowded with all those people you taught to fish.”
Insanely higher incarceration rates are caused by insanely higher incidents of committing felonies.
I keep hearing about this "lower quality education access", but the only problem I find is that teachers don't want to work where their work isn't valued. If I ever became a teacher... I wouldn't agree to work at an inner city school either. The culture of those attending those schools doesn't allow the vast majority to value education.... and then there are the safety concerns as well.
We built that.
When people in those neighborhoods start learning how to value education and success in civilized society instead of valuing "Being Hard" and the "Thug Life". When they start following the law rather than finding a way to break it at every step....
If you think that these "laws" and "policies" created this..... I don't know how to discuss this with you.
These laws and policies didn't create this thug life/don't give a **** about anybody but me attitude you are dead wrong.
