  • Hello class! As stated on the board, today we will be learning about the Prison Reform Movement. Log onto your computers to read the text I have posted on Canvas.
  • TCI: Chapter 18, Section 3, The Prison Reform Movement Before the Prison Reform Movement began, people were bound in chains and locked in cages. Children accused of minor thefts were jailed with adult criminals. The mentally ill were locked in dirty, crowded cells and if they misbehaved, were whipped. One woman, by the name of Dorothea Dix, wanted to stop the horror that was being done to these people. She brought awareness for the mentally ill and helped get treatment for those in asylums. To do this, she visited hundreds of jails and prisons, and after two years, prepared a detailed report for the Massachusetts state legislature. Shocked by Dix's report, lawmakers voted to create public asylums for the mentally ill.

  • And the rest is history! Because of the Prison Reform Movement, state governments no longer put people that owed money in prison. In addition, most states had created special justice systems for children in trouble. Lastly, many had outlawed cruel punishments, such as branding people with hot irons.
  • Ugh, do we have to be here?
