Problems/Solutions

Problem:The Bahamas is challenged by the unacceptable level of crime in our country. Prison statistics reveal that more than 90% of those involved in crime are male; is about 9 out of 10 are Bahamian nationals; 2 out of 3 are under the age of 35 and fewer than 25% admitted to prison have a high school diploma.

Solution:The Government’s goal is to improve the quality of life and the standard of living of all our citizens, including those, who, for one reason or another, find themselves incarcerated in prison. The prison is required by law to ensure that all suitable inmates are taught a trade and that they are exposed to educational opportunities, particularly those inmates who are in need of remedial

Conclusion/Reflection

I learned there is bad crimes in the Bahamas and that there are more activities than I thought there were. Also I am surprised by how long ago they were found or explored. Lastly I am surprised by there long history.

History and culture

1492 discovered by Christopher Columbus. Also from 1861 to 1865, The Islands Of The Bahamas benefited greatly from the U.S. Civil War. Britain’s textile industry depended on Southern cotton; however, the Union blockaded British ships from reaching Southern ports. So blockade runners from Charleston met British ships here and traded cotton for British goods. Upon their return, they sold their shipment for huge profits. The end of the Civil War marked the end of prosperity. In 1919, the United States passed the 18th amendment prohibiting alcohol. The colonial government expanded Prince George Wharf in Nassau to accommodate the flow of alcohol. When Prohibition ended in 1934 so did the enormous revenues. Combined with the collapse of the sponge harvesting industry, it economically devastated The Bahamas.
