Locked in but Locked Out: Death Sentence for the Higher Education of Black Prison Inmates?
Slater, Robert Bruce
Journal of Blacks in Higher Education, n6 p101-03 Win 1994-95
Argues that, although there are presently over 20,000 prison inmates, the largest of whom are black, enrolled in higher education programs, by 1996, there may be none. The author provides justification for prisoner rehabilitation, revealing the inadequacy of harsh punishment in stemming crime, and presents reasons why higher education in prisons is important to maintain.
