The one thing I disagree with you on PC is about education. I do think prisons should provide free education. Most of the people in prison don't have access to education. But if you can teach them something that will help them get a (legal) job, then I think the reform part of prison has been fulfilled. I think there is a delicate balance between prison being a place for punishment and a place for reform.



Once the average law abiding citizen is offered free education/job training, then I'll reconsider my stance on free education/job training for criminals.
Until then I do not feel it is right that people being punished for heinous crimes can get for free, what I had to work my butt off for and am still paying for today (will likely be doing so for the next decade or so. Many average citizens still don't even try because they feel the situation (gaining an education) is so hopeless.

I am all for what I call "reform" classes offered at the prisons such as anger/stress management, gaining your [sign in to see URL]., parenting, learning simply finances (keeping a checking account, how to budget and so on)... etc. etc.

Maybe I'm just getting crabby in my old age emoticon

I guess this is more what I'm talking about - especially the GED part. Not college education necessarily, but perhaps trade schools. Though I believe that a prison could set up a system wherein prisoners work their butts off and earn the right to higher education.
