You know there’s a problem when the country is spending more on their prisons than on their education system. Sadly, that’s precisely what’s happening here in the US. As colleges have continued to lose funding, states have also increased spending on their prisons (some spend close to twice as much on prisons than on higher education).
The guys over at Public Administration illustrated this eye-opening graphic to reveal how prioritizing prisons over higher education has become a common trend here.
