Prison reform through inmate education — from NBC News’ Education Nation by Melissa Harris-Perry and Sean Pica
Sean Pica, executive director of Hudson Link for Higher Education in Prison, talks about how his organization provides educational services to men and women in four New York state correctional facilities.

One particular item that Melissa mentioned that jumped out at me:

  • National rate of recidivism (i.e. relapse into criminal behavior) = 40%
  • Recidivism rate of those 260 in prison who have gone through the Hudson Link for Higher Education in Prison = 0%
