Become an advocate for “End School to Prison Pipeline” system. 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).
