Challenge

The United State leads the world in incarceration. Prioritizing punishment over rehabilitation has led to mass imprisonment, mainly of the nation's most vulnerable populations: people of color, the economically disadvantaged, and under-educated, and those suffering from mental illness. The health discrepancies are the most concerning.

Solution

Students will learn from first hand correspondence with those incarcerated how the prison systems are being affected through a bioethical lens.

Long-Term Impact

Students will gain full understanding of the treatment in the prison system with potential to understand the importance of curbing the "school to prison pipeline" mentality.
