Hi. I am an English teacher. Five months ago I accepted a job working with male youth incarcerated for serious crimes (murder, rape, assault with a deadly weapon). I was idealistic and naive, despite considerable age and experience I thought that I might be capable of making an impact on the system. However, what I have found is a state government that has frozen hiring and essentially handicapped the education department to the degree that effectiveness is virtually impossible.
 
The education department is down seven members and several classes take place with no teacher present and no work being done. The guards, the secretarial staff, the business office and the maintenance departments are all down staff. It seems to be just a matter of time before someone gets hurt. This situation is a crime, particularly considering that the state of New York has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to quantifiably determine that education is the primary factor influencing the reduction of recidivism rates. Incarcerated people cost the state 50,000 to 80,000 dollars a year a piece and yet Pataki's government decides to save a few million now in exchange for a few billion later. Needless to say, I find the entire situation to be futile and discouraging.
 
I have decided to get a job in the public school system and to try to prevent at-risk youth from entering into the state system. Also, the financial rewards are considerably greater in the public school system and the overall environment is not as bleak. I have updated my resume and am beginning to put application packages together. I am hoping that someone could share insight with me on Saturn which is presently transiting my midheaven opposite Neptune conjunct my nadir. Am I jumping ship too soon? I originally thought that this job would be the platform for a career in prison education reform. I feel terrible about abandoning the cause after only five months, but my colleagues in civil society are making 20%-50% more than me and they are also experiencing a more pleasant day to day existence.
 
Are the values of Christ merely an exercise in self destruction? Who is going to help the desperate, the wounded and the doomed? Who will show up for the poor and the hopeless?
Melissa

Dear Melissa,
