I chose this word b/c this what reform is. Reform is when you take action to make a change and that it can be violent, verbal and visionary just like innovation. So for that reason innovation is the perfect word to use for reform. Reform and innovation is taking a idea and making it better in some way. In the prisoner and mentally ill reform they made a innovation to the problem and made it better. The innovation was that the mentally ill got better medical treatment and more mental hospitals were built. The prisoners got a bit more release so that the prisons weren't so crowded and that law was an innovation b/c they took a law and made it better.
