This sourcebook introduces the basic concept of college in prison, describes programs that exist across the country today, and considers the challenges and opportunities facing community college educators who are interested in the growing movement to reintroduce postsecondary education to America s prisons. Not only do the authors write from their personal experience as educators, they also expound on many issues that arise in prison teaching, including: * the clash between college assumptions and prison rules, * the complete absence of public funding for college in prison, * the racial dimension of mass incarceration, and * insights on key issues facing college educators in the prison context today. This is the 170th volume of this Jossey-Bass quarterly report series. Essential to the professional libraries of presidents, vice presidents, deans, and other leaders in today's open-door institutions, New Directions for Community Colleges provides expert guidance in meeting the challenges of their distinctive and expanding educational mission.
