Knox County Advocates: Education Now or Prison Later

Knox County police administrators and government representatives joined Fight the Crime: Invest in Kids to stress the importance of early childhood education to reduce crime, the News Sentinel reports. Officials, including Knox County District Attorney General Randy Nichols, joined the nonpartisan organization on Thursday at a Knoxville Head Start center to read to children and spread their message that paying to educate children now is better than sending them through the justice system as adults.
