How can you end up in prison?...I guess everyone watches Prison Break, or OZ, and that'S how we build our ideologies and thinking about what prison is like. I hear now that the show " The Orange is the new Black" paints a lovely picture of what jail and prison is like. I would beg to differ with you. The country... http://buff.ly/22iVUlj

One in 14 Americans will grow up with a parent in prison...When Erica was a young child, she had a hard time coping with the absence of her father. Even as a five-year-old, she would violently act out. Her mother shielded Erica from the knowledge that her dad was in prison, a convicted serial rapist. Eventually, counselors at a specialized after-school program revealed to Erica that... http://buff.ly/25dJikQ

Turning prisoners into entrepeneurs...  i've often wondered how societies can build a criminal justice system that finds the right balance between punishment and rehabilitation of those in its care.

Criminal courts produce millions of orphans every year....Children deserve legal standing when parents are sentenced   Are children entitled to legal standing when parents are sentenced in criminal cases? The current answer is “no.” The answer should be “yes.” Today, the well-being of a defendant’s children is close to irrelevant in criminal courtrooms. Institutional indifference to children is official policy. This is... http://buff.ly/1BIu4kC

LEAVING SCHOOL...It's easy to take for granted the fact that most of us grew up in homes where going to school was apart of life and not graduating wasn't an option. At the same time most of us don't realize how kids in America don't graduate high school every year and the numbers are growing at… http://buff.ly/1jZMh47
