Marc Little, Vice Chairman for the Center for Urban Renewal and Education, recently appeared on Fox News to discuss what’s not working in violent cities like Chicago and drug-filled cities like San Francisco.
Little believes the focus should be on employment, housing, and education, “specifically, employment for felons.”
If non-violent felons can’t get jobs, it leads to more crime, he added.
“We know that a job keeps people from going back to jail. That’s number one. Number two, we know that in some of our cities, we have city leadership who has misapplied their housing funds. We call it Section 8.”
Misapplication of these funds contributes to homelessness. The third issue is education. Leaders want to keep kids in failing schools. They must embrace school choice and vouchers.
Little said that money isn’t the problem. Watch the brief clip to find out what he thinks is the problem.
