The principal of the school in the prison told me he thought it was safe to say that roughly 75% of the prisoners in the US didn't have a HS diploma, based on his experiences and his studies.Another interesting quote I had seen was, "85% of all youths in prison come from fatherless homes". I found this in Donald Miller's book To Own a Dragon. The quote is also on the Belmont Foundation web site http://www.belmontfoundation.org/.I'm actually curious about how many of the inmates have reading problems. I have a son who is dyslexic. Fortunatly for us and him it was diagnosed fairly early (2nd grade). We also are fortunate to live in an area that has one of, if not the most, recognized private school that specializes in teaching dyslexic children. I know that many children who go undiagnosed end up frustrated and drop out of school and into trouble.~Stillwell
