Fair compromise between education and criminal policy?

Given limited resources, would it be fair to divert funding from the criminal justice system into the inner city education system? For example, if prisons were run at cost or profitably, the money could be invested in underprivileged schools. Clearly to prevent discriminatory exposure, such reform would require proportionality provisions that would make sure the prisoners under such a system would be in line with state demographics. Hence, some prisoners would remain under the current prison system.
If after getting a better education there are no jobs for them, we would just have a better educated criminal.
People need jobs, and if they can't find them, they will find other ways to get things they need, or want.
