Children's Defense Fund's Cradle to Prison Pipeline

Cradle to Prison Pipeline

There is also a study called "Cradle to Prison Pipeline" that is being conducted by The Children's Defense Fund. They have been looking at the different races and how some kids are bound to end up in jail because of their environments and economic situation. For example it shows that children born into tough environments like housing developments are easily pushed into a path which leads to imprisonment unlike that of those who are born into middle class families that live in  decent apartments. They are using this study to help and reachout to those people in bad situations.  They hope to prevent problems for kids by talking to them and giving them better opportunities. How do you feel this study can relate to the article above? Do you think they are doing something helpful with this campaign? Can you think of other things that can be done? If so, let us know.
