“College-educated citizenry are more employable, less likely to engage in high-risk health behaviors, which decreases your health costs, and are less likely to participate in any criminal activity, If you want to decrease health care costs, if you want to decrease the cost of incarceration, education is the ladder you should focus on.” – Lorenzo Baber, University of Illinois.
