Students go home at the end of the day, prisoners don't. In terms of just straight dollars per hour, they're actually spending less on prisoners.

Furthermore, most schools have

-School nurses
-Internet access
-Gyms
-Libraries
-Free sports programs (Or just equipment costs)
-Computer labs
-You're in school, you're actively getting a degree
-You get lunch

As for the ones they don't cover, being Cable television, Laundry services, clothing and free dental care, 99% of students have access to all of those outside of school.

I mean, sure a lot of states overspend on prisoners, but this is easily the worst argument for it i've ever seen.

-school nurses are not as highly certified as prison nurses and can not give out medication to students, or do anything other than wrap bandages around it or let students sleep it off
-can't argue there
-gyms at schools are used during class, not open during free time and rarely match prison gyms for amount or quality of equipment
-school libraries are often better than prison ones, although this is debatable
-falls under after school programs, which republicans have been trying to axe sense they first started, and in many areas have
-you are getting/working towards a highschool diploma, in prison you can work towards a PHD at no cost, something that most students only dream about
-school lunches are less nutritious, quite often use lower quality ingredients, parents have to pay for them (unless they qualify for low cost/no cost lunches, which are being cut back on) and yet again, republicans are trying to axe this program. This doesn't mention that the conditions in many school lunch preparation areas have been found to have MAJOR health code violations

As for healthcare and such, um, wrong. Most public school student who live under the poverty line (varying from 30-69% of public school students, depending on area) have no health insurance or dental care, so yeah, tell me another ******** statistic? Also, with clothes and laundry, ect, the parents still pay for that. Prisoners don't. And many students living under the poverty line don't have cable.

In the future, please try knowing what you are talking about before you shoot off your mouth, it helps you not look like a fool when someone comes around who actually knows what the facts are.

I should note, when I spoke about school nurses, they can not give out medication the student is not already prescribed. A prison nurse can actually prescribe medication for prisoners.

So? They shouldn't have more spent on them than kids. If you swapped that spending, then you would probably have much brighter people, and therefore less criminals. Not only that, but why are they getting internet access? Why are they getting television? Many law-abiding citizens don't have this, so why should prisoners get more things than the people they are harming?

It's most certainly not justice.

well lets not be hasty here, sure the murderers and rapist yes we can shoot them, hell i'd ****** do it myself if asked, those who assault people i'd keep there.. but those who were thrown in just for selling drugs or theft, they were just too stupid and got caught and should be let out after a year or 2

Public shaming is a much better way of dealing with thieves and drug dealers, have them stand outside the store they robbed or make them walk around the town with a sign telling people why theyre in trouble, it makes people entering a store less likely to steal because theres a guy who got caught standing outside it, and it lets parents and good citizens know who the drug dealers are so they can make sure their kids avoid them, everything else theres bullets, whata you think?
