Education and Prison Funding – the connection between them

As you can guess, the system of our society was not always built in the way that we see now. Nowadays such processes as education and control are the inseparable parts of the society. However, this wasn’t always so. The process of education development lies deeply in the beginning of the human society. People were always teaching each other to learn better how to survive in a cruel world. Which plants are eatable and which are not, how to obtain and maintain fire and other questions were parts of the education those days. After thousands of years, the educational system becomes much more sophisticated, but it still performs a primal function – to teach people how to survive in a modern world. The other important function of education (from the ancient times to nowadays) is to teach people how to be effective inside of the society. Many thousands of years ago tribal leaders were teaching their tribesmen how to respect older people, help tribe to stay effective and powerful. Nowadays modern schools do the same. The main goal of every school is to help their students become an effective and happy member of the modern society. All the above mentioned sounds very positive… So, where is the connection with the positive educational processes and scary word ‘prison’?

The prison system is the part of control that was always used by society. However, nowadays the prison system demonstrates surprising numbers in the US. In eleven American states, lawmakers spend more money on prison system than on public colleges! The situation was not always so. For example, prison funding grew by 141% since 1986 year. Which states spend more money on prisons? They are Michigan, Colorado, Oregon, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Delaware, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut. Of course, these numbers are talking not only about the big funding of prisons but abut small funding of public colleges. Surely, state funding is not the only source of funding for colleges. Usually, it is a half and a half comes from tuitions and fees, the federal government. Now more and more countries come to the idea to lock fewer people for nonviolent crimes to shift more money to colleges and universities. It is like making a new direction for society to decide what is really important and find the best future for it. Surely, these words are only words and there is still no decision that will allow society to avoid prison system and huge funding.

As you can guess, the system of our society was not always built in the way that we see now. Nowadays such processes as education and control are the inseparable parts of the society. However, this wasn’t always so. The process of education development lies deeply in the beginning of the human society.
