LET 'EM LEARN

Currently, in California, there is more funding for the prison system than there is for education. There is a direct correlation between the increase of funds allocated for prisons and the decrease of educational funds. The general view of the present day youth, particularly inner city youth, is distorted by the media, as it sensationalizes their ‘violent’ and ‘drug ridden’ ‘promiscuous’ lifestyles. With this influence, the public is calling for government to incarcerate youth at an increasing speed, while ignoring their most important resource: educated youth.

This video will reveal the misdirected priorities of the state and federal government. The video takes a position on this issue, placing blame on the current system; and will motivate the audience to consider the issue, and perhaps become involved in changing the system.
