INFOGRAPHIC: Philadelphia Funding for Incarceration vs. Education

This infographic lays out in detail the expense and effectiveness of funding incarceration vs. education, using the city of Philadlephia as a case study.

In a stunning upset, education proves a far better investment. It’s way cheaper in the long run, and the returns are exponentially better.

There is no rational argument you can make that we should be increasing funding for incarceration and cutting funding for education. It would be irretrievably stupid.
