On an average, states spend $88,000 to incarcerate youth but only $10,000 to educate them. In the past 20 years, the amount spent on incarceration, parole and probation increased 6 times more than money for colleges and universities. In times of budget cuts and struggling schools, the United States spends 70 billion dollars a year on incarceration (Dignity School.org).
AADM Teen Social Justice Committee will focus on developing an advocacy program in order to combat the School to Prison Pipeline system and reduce the disproportionate impact on minority students due to school suspension and expulsion policies, which leads to high drop out rates and incarceration.
