Summary
"Provide education to prisoners and they won't return to crime. Presenting a workable solution to America's over incarceration and recidivism problems, this book demonstrates that great fiscal benefits arise when modest sums are spent educating prisoners, instead of dedicating exponentially higher resources to confining them. Educating prisoners brings a reduction in crime and social disruption"--
