Education Is Important

  • I believe that education is important no matter if you are incarcerated or in the free world.  Education broadens your mind and takes you to a whole different level.


    I think that the availability of educational programs in prisons is the key to reducing the recidivism rate.


    Benefits of educational programs in prison are:  instilling a sense of pride and accomplishment in persons incarcerated which reduces the chance that they will break prison rules or participate in prohibited activities; at the same time equipping a prisoner with skills to succeed upon release from prison.


    I recommend that anyone whom is incarcerated take advantage of any and all available educational programs.
