S284: A World Without Prisons? in Splash Fall 2016 (Nov. 05, 2016 - Apr. 29, 2017)
2.3 million people are held in the American criminal justice system, but has this made our society safer? Is this what justice looks like? Why have we shaped our criminal justice system around punishment instead of rehabilitation? In this class we will discuss the factors that have led to high incarceration rates in the US, and whether or not it is possible to build a world without prisons. Students should come with an open mind and a willingness to engage in debate.
