This is a “captive audience”. We have so much time. Let’s use it to help make real change. I volunteered to teach reading in prison several years ago. There was no program. The books were from the 1920s . And yet I found the men were hopeful of learning to read and write, take their GEDs, and write poetry to their girlfriends. It’s so hard to make up for a lifetime of failed systems- families, schools, housing, jobs. And yet, they had hope and effort. If we gave them a real shot at success I am sure recidivism could be reduced.
