This article follows a man who seems to fall in line with many of the statistics following prison inmates and recidivism. He came from a low income area in which crime was all around him and naturally got caught up in it himself. He also had little to no education. That is until he went to prison. He served 25 years, received his GED, associates and later bachelors while serving. Never went back to prison and now has a PHD and is a teacher himself. This provides a nice human example, a face behind the statistics.
