En indsat fra USA fortæller om sit liv og hvad undervisning i fængslet gjorde for ham. Hans start i livet var ikke nemt.
I never knew my biological father, and all my mother’s companions were actively involved in dealing narcotics and illicit firearms. This environment, coupled with the fact that the only real education I had was on the streets, set me on the wrong path.
Et undervisningsprogram i staten gav ham nogle muligheder
Teaching provides me the opportunity to give back to my community and give students with a real-world perspective of how our criminal justice system does and should function.
Han slutter med at fortælle, at hans oplevelser ikke er unikke og meget kunne været sket, men afslutter med denne kommentar
I am who I am today thanks to the education I received and the teachers who provided it to me.
