What Do You Expect, We're All Crooks.
Hruska, Thomas J.
This paper relates the conflicting impressions an English teacher who teaches extension courses at a maximum security prison has experienced while teaching literature and composition in such an environment. Anecdotes about individual prisoners and their circumstances reveal both the similarities and the extremely harsh differences between their classwork and the classwork of traditional college students.
