Despite the fact that the United States has the highest rate of incarceration in the world, there are very few books available for children and young adults on the topic. In addition, there are not enough books featuring families dealing with incarceration. Books featuring people who are incarcerated and on the prison-industrial complex should be in every school. See this list of teaching activities and articles on incarceration at the Zinn Education Project.
