NX – Prisons/Sentencing Reform

How mass incarceration creates ‘million dollar blocks’ in poor neighborhoods

A most interesting counterpoint to most of the discussions I’ve seen on either the cost of prisons or the need for sentencing reform. I’ve linked directly to the original article; attempts to save it as a PDF file didn’t capture the maps. (I love maps. I student taught Geometry classes and love what maps can be used for. The impact graphically is more impressive than a chart would have been. Besides, you’re in high school, and reading maps, graphs, and charts is part of the standards for Social Studies.)
