Senator Bernie Sanders speaking on the Senate floor on July 8, 2015 about the embarrassing state of our pre-kindergarten, primary & secondary education systems. He also shows the correlation between our education & childcare failure to the ever-growing & costly correctional facilities.
He cites that we, the taxpayers of the UnitedStates, pay more than $70 billion (with a B) for housing & operating our correctional facilities. Consistently locking up people who do not belong there – ruining their lives & those of their families.
And yet, we are not willing to spend the extra $’s that could go towards seeing our littlest hopes for the future of our country ~ Our Children!
