Response to Lewisetta In practice, educators use many terms or labels to discuss children and families who live in poverty. Gloria Rodriguez and James Fabionar (2010) assert that the many terms we use should serve "as a reminder of how often we are called on in education to talk about -- but not necessarily to" -- our students and their families who live with low incomes (p. 64). As educators, we must be sensitive to the effects of poverty on our students' state of mind and ensure that we separate their developing sense of self from their living conditions. As a starting point, we must be extremely careful how we talk about children who live in poverty.

For my senior paper I will be doing my paper on mental health in prisons. Mental health in prison is a fairly broad topic, so I will be focus on if the numbers of inmates receive help for their illness while in prison compared to outside of prison. It is my thought that inmates receive more treatment for their mental illness than people not incarcerated because it is more available to them and cheaper. For this paper, I will have many sources that are pulled from journal databases, such as National Criminal Justice Reference Service Abstract Database. I have also found a few published books, which have valuable information about mental health in prisons.
