A growing number of linelevel criminal justice practitioners have college degrees Will the advanced education of these practitioners create greater or less resistance to change within criminal justice organizations I think that an education is always a good thing I think that many of the line level criminal justice practitioners that now have college degrees is not something that could ever be looked upon as something that is negative Knowledge is never something that should be frowned upon A refusal to gain knowledge is something that could very much be frowned upon Will the advanced education of these practitioners create greater or less resistance to change within the criminal justice organizations I think this question would generally depend on the person that is gaining the education Based on their personality and perspective on the world the resistance to change whether it be greater or lesser would be based on how they viewed the criminal justice system The resistance or lack thereof to change would also be based on the type of education that they received Is that education very traditional or is it relatively liberal and modern I think that the basis of the education would also play a factor on whether or not change would be welcomed Personally I think that the knowledge is power and the more knowledge we have the more likely we would be ready to allow change to take place or resist it Knowledge would allow us to see which is most needed and which would be better Knowledge would give us the confidence to execute what needed to be done Response 2 A growing number of linelevel criminal justice practitioners have college degrees Will the advanced education of these practitioners create greater or less resistance to change within criminal justice organizations It is difficult to gauge if the advanced education of the linelevel criminal justice practitioners will create greater or less resistance to change within the criminal justice system This is because the ideals and beliefs of an individual is not just based on one s education Instead other factors such as religious background and the state which one grew up in also contributes to the ideals of the individual and thus affect whether or not he wishes to push for change within the criminal justice organization In general I feel that the advanced education of these practitioners will create less resistance to change within the criminal justice organization This is because those who attain higher education are generally thought to be more liberal than others As such it is expected these individuals would want to push for more changes in the criminal justice organizations in order to better re ect liberal ideals Theen 2012 In addition with better education qualifications these individuals may feel that they are more informed and thus more legitimized to push for changes within the systems and organizations As a result this will create less resistance to change within the criminal justice organizations Despite so the provision of more information on practitioners would help to make a more reliable judgment on whether there would be greater or lesser resistance Reference Theen A 2012 College Freshmen Are More Liberal on Gay Marriage Abortion Retrieved from httpwwwbloombergcomnews20120126collegefreshmenaremore liberalon gaymarriageabortionhtml
