Linking education and corrections in battling recidivism
A couple of recent pieces in notable general-interest publications provide yet another opportunity to see the links between effective educational programs and effective corrections programs:
- From the New York Times here, "Read a Book, Get Out of Jail"
- From The New Republic here, "Con Ed: Reading 'Lolita' in the Big House"
I wish we could make all politicians read these articles whenever they are considering the latest "tough-on-crime" legislative proposal or when they are thinking about what prison programs to cut during these tough economic times.
