Re: “College behind bars: Education’s transformative power for America’s incarcerated men and women”:

The Op-Ed stated that after 20 years of the Bard Prison Initiative, 96% of its graduates had stayed out of prison. Now that helps keep me safe.

It also mentioned that there’s bipartisan legislation to restore funding for prison-college education. That legislation is the Restoring Education And Learning (REAL) Act, H.R. 2168 in the House and S. 1074 in the Senate. Ask your Congressional delegation to support it.
