Ted Eismeier works at Fight Crime: Invest In Kids, and as this podcast returns from a two-week or so hiatus — I had to move 1,200 miles guys, so sue me — we chat about juvenile justice, youth offenders, how to deal with the big-picture issues, some of Fight Crime’s initiatives for the remainder of 2012, and more. It’s an interesting discussion, and at only 18 minutes, it’s eminently consumable for a commute.
You know that whole argument/urban myth about third grade reading scores and prison building? We address that here. (It’s also addressed well in this article.)
Fight Crime: Invest in Kids does have a YouTube Channel, featuring one of the guys from The Wire speaking on these issues, if you’d like to check that out.
