Governor Beebe,
Instead of funneling all State and Federal Money into the States biggest expense, Socialized education, why not build cheap Prison Farms and put all convicts to work on the farms and light industry. Tents don't cost much and neither does the buckshot needed to control a chain gang.

Our Citizens Safety and Security is your number one priority. Deter Crime and the maybe you will have more citizens to sit in the classrooms.
