Misplaced Priorities: Sign Our Petition to Tell America’s Governors to Focus on Education, not Incarceration

America spends too much money sending people to prison, and not enough to make sure they never get there. The result of our misplaced priorities is that too many children, particularly in communities of color, are set on a path to a prison cell instead of a college classroom.

On April 7, the NAACP released Misplaced Priorities, a new report that explores how America overspends on incarceration at the expense of education, and outlines the specific reforms that our states can enact to reverse this trend.
