In addition to learning about the national climate when it comes to incarceration, I think it is also important that you understand the issues within our own state. Please review the material found in the link below and answer the following prompt: 1) What did you learn about Texas incarceration, especially as it relates to race? 2) How does this compare to the national information? And 3) based upon the issues that you chose to address, what solutions can you suggest for how to fix these problems?
As with all assignments in this class, I am not concerned with length, rather I am interested in your ability to explain the material (in your own words) and your arguments. I expect that most will be able to do this in 1-2 pages. Additionally, as you’ve noticed, I am particularly interested in your solutions, so be sure to focus your attention on these.
