Bad education + lousy jobs = crime

The Times-Picayune (7/11/2005):

According to a new report released by State Policy Reports, in 2003 Louisiana imprisoned 801 people for every 100,000 residents. Mississippi was next worst, with 768 people in prison for every 100,000 people who live there.

It shouldn't come as a surprise that two states with high rates of child poverty, lagging economies and a long history of subpar schools would have crime problems.

It's so frustrating that people don't seem to understand that you have to improve the schools to bring businesses here. We can't all work in the service industry....
