Prison education – interview with Jody Lewen | VIEWPOINT

In 1994, the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act barred American prisoners from receiving Pell Grants. As a result, the College Program at San Quentin was founded. Today, Jody Lewen is the Executive Director of the program, and she talks about her work in prison education with Gerard Robinson from the Center for Advancing Opportunity.

    Being a graduate student of social work, I carry deep concern for the growing rate of incarceration in the United States. Your meaningful work literally brought tears in my eyes. Hats off to all your team who is working to help these incarcerated people. May God bless you all!
