Teachers or Bankers….Who really should be in Jail?
Early this year several teachers in the Atlanta school district were sentenced to jail for falsifying tests results. While what they did was illegal some believe the sentence was too harsh for the crime. Many point to the fact that bankers who were primarily responsible for the financial hardship of millions were never convicted of anything. The actions with the two types of crimes are examples of why our justice system seems to be unfair. It is not just bankers but top executives of many of the largest companies in the world never seem to go to jail for their actions. What do you think? Do you think the teachers should have went to jail? Do you think more banking executives responsible for the companies that committed the bank fraud should go to jail? After completing the lesson plan Pract the facts on this issue in our online forum. .
To provide the user with information so they can make a determination on the fairness of our justice system with respect to the Atlanta teachers scandal as opposed to banking fraud committed by some of the country’s largest financial institutions.
