Priorities: Schools, not Prisons!

NorCal and SoCal understand and agree: 

Our priority should be schools - not prisons.

Sam Davis tells a powerful story and makes many good points, including:

1.  Education can prevent crime by giving people options
2.  Over the past 30 years, prison spending has gone up 30 times
3.  Many adult schools closed.
4..  And tuition (at the CSU system) has tripled.
5..  The state is spending way more on prisons than on education.
6.  Our priorities have reversed.

Two Teachers and a Microphone lay it out straight:  We need preschools - not prisons.
