Money not well spent

Regarding the news story “3,900 stimulus checks went to prison inmates” (The Signal, Aug. 27):

Millions of dollars are being taken away from the education system while the government is giving $250 checks to almost 4,000 prison inmates.

This is crazy, absurd and completely unfair!

I am a student at Cal State Northridge who is trying to better myself through education and am suffering along with many others due to the budget cuts.

So instead of sending these checks to inmates who aren’t serving in any way to improve the economy, why doesn’t the government just send me a $250 check? 

Editor’s note: Fair or not, the federal government issued these checks; the state is responsible for the cuts to education to which you refer.
