These conditions are terrible. No one should be here like this.
I cant teach in these conditions
I DONT CARE
Dorothea Dix Thought the prison conditions were absolutely horrible for people.
She did not want to teach in these conditions. She wanted better prisons for children.
"I come to you as the advocate of helpless, forgotten, insane... men and woman, i proceed... to call your attention to the present state of the insane persons, confined... in cages, closets, cellars, stalls, pens! chained, naked, beaten with roots, and lashed into obedience!
For two years she collected information about the horrors shes seen
She prepared a detailed report about for the state legislator.
The legislators were shocked at what they heard.
She visted other prisons as well and continued her fight for healthy prisons until she died in 1887.
