Million-Dollar Blocks Map Incarcerations Costs : NPR

From Tuesday’s NPR All Thing Considered.

“But today when … we see those blocks, things have changed quite a bit. There has been a real investment by the city and the state, and particularly the Department of Probation, to engage with local organizations around the community and strengthen what theyre doing.”

The city of EPA is trying to do this, but struggling to get it right. However, the idea is there, and now there is a group quantifying the approach. I really like the idea of government rallying behind community groups to strengthen what they are doing (as opposed to government doing it themselves). The city of EPA is making great progress in this area. The school board, not so much.
