States Are Prioritizing Prisons Over Education, Budgets Show

States Are Prioritizing Prisons Over Education, Budgets Show | Classroom Candy | Scoop.it

A report released this week by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities shows that the growth of state spending on prisons in recent years has far outpaced the growth of spending on education. After adjusting for inflation, state general fund spending on prison-related expenses increased over 140 percent between 1986 and 2013. During the same period, state spending on K-12 education increased only 69 percent, while higher education saw an increase of less than six percent.

This new infographic from ISTE compares a good citizen to a good digital citizen. Many students many find this poster of value as they learn the need to be a good citizen both online and offline.

As the post states, being a good citizen and a good digital citizen "are not so different from the basic tenets of traditional citizenship: Be kind, respectful and responsible, and just do the right thing."

16 Apps That Motivate Kids to Read | Classroom Candy | Scoop.it

To help, we've rounded up a list of the top apps that not only teach essential reading skills but also motivate kids—even the most book-phobic—to read, read and read some more."
