Education vs. Incarceration 2013

August 11th, 2013 Comments off

Education and Incarceration June52013Education and Incarceration in NYS: Recalculating the fate of New York’s Youth, from Cuomo to Cuomo, by William Martin and Andrew Pragacz.  June 5, 2013.

Almost fifteen years ago the Correctional Association of New York documented how New York’s governors and politicians had rapidly increased prison funding while cutting funding to higher education.  Current political announcements and media coverage suggest that these long-term trends may be faltering, and that a brighter future may await New York’s youth. In this report we examine this larger landscape for New York State’s youth. Looking at long-term trends, we highlight hopes for the future—and worries about the present. Among our most critical finding is the likely continuation of the inheritance of the past: a growing disparity, despite changes in mass imprisonment and higher education, in the life chances of poor, Black, and Latino youth across the state.

Title: Stamp Drive
Location: SUNY Binghamton

Description: The newly revitalized Binghamton Prisoner Support Network (PSN) has several activities planned, including re-establishing contacts with incarcerated people we have written to in the past; beginning new correspondences with prisoners; sending literature, books and legal resources to people on the inside, and so on.

All of these things require funds, which we are raising, and one major expenditure of those funds is postage. Stamps are necessary for basically everything we do, and here’s where YOU can help in a real and immediate way.

We are asking for donations of stamps starting tomorrow, 22 September 2009. If you’re on the BU campus, drop by the Graduate Student Organization office, LN 2441, to leave your donation. If you’re not in the area, you can mail your donation here:

Prisoner Support Network
c/o Graduate Student Organization
Library North / LN 2441
SUNY Binghamton
Binghamton, NY 13902-6000

We will accept any postage, in any amount, but we prefer first-class “forever” stamps because of constantly rising postage rates.

Make today the day that you make a difference!
