All-School Learning Experience Community Panel: “Mass Incarceration: Causes and Cures”

Join Boston University Academy and BU Howard Thurman Center for a co-sponsored panel discussion entitled “Mass Incarceration: Causes and Cures.”  

The United States has the highest rate of incarceration in the world. In the land of the free, 2.5 million individuals are imprisoned, at an annual cost of roughly $74 billion. This panel will address the problem of mass incarceration in the U.S., looking at the ways in which education impacts incarceration, asking what rights prisoners have, and exploring possibilities for reducing the prison population in America.
