Prisons and Jails: Who Pays the Price 

With Center for Urban Pedagogy and Bushwick Leaders High School 

In December 2018, CUP collaborated with Teaching Artist Marianna Olinger and students from the Bushwick Leaders’ High School to understand the cost of prison, who profits from it, and who pays for it. To investigate, students used art to create maps of the prison system, surveyed community members, and interviewed key stakeholders working on the issue. This booklet is a guide to what students learned about the true cost of prisons and jails. You can download it here
