“The cost of raising a child just went up!” According to the Department of Agriculture, middle class parents will spend roughly $233, 610 raising one child from birth until the age of eighteen. http://time.com/money/4629700/child-raising-cost-department-of-agriculture-report/. That’s about $13,153.53 per year.

The United States spends $13,119.00 to educate one child per year https://nces.ed.gov/fastfacts/display.asp?id=66 but $148,767 to incarcerate one youth per year. https://www.usnews.com/news/blogs/data-mine/2014/12/09/what-youth-incarceration-costs-taxpayers Wait? What? Something is not adding up here!

When we spend over eleven times as much money incarcerating our children than we do educating them, we have a serious problem in our society. With so many mentor programs, church outreach centers, and non-profit organizations, how is it that we continue to lose our kids to drugs, violence, and other criminal activities? Maybe if we invested more money and resources in education, we wouldn’t have to put so much into the prison industry.

Dying to live ~ when are we going to make the well-being of our children our top priority instead of using them as another way to generate revenue?

Tammy Gaitor and Rodney Jordan will discuss this hot topic on the next Live Episode of the Butterfly Evolution Show, Tuesday, September 25, 2018. Join the conversation via Blog Talk Radio or by phone at 818-691-7406.
