Ed Rendell on Crime

Democratic PA Governor

Fund education well, and we can cut incarceration costs

The cost of housing prisoners in Pennsylvania continues to rise. We must reverse this trend, if for no other reason than the failure to do so threatens to overwhelm our ability to meet skyrocketing prison costs. Increased funding for public education is one great way to address this problem, because it provides an opportunity for our young people to choose the right path. But we must do more to reduce the rising costs of incarceration, & I welcome the opportunity to partner with you to achieve this goal
