EDUCATION IN PRISON

There aren’t education opportunities in prison for most people, despite programs. I’m fortunate enough to be in a good one myself, for technical design and computer drafting. But even aside from “official” programs, there is essentially no limit to what we can achieve in educating ourselves alone. All of the info is out there. We have a library with a loan system, so we can get pretty much any book we want in existence. Just by studying and reading, I’ve given myself a great education, and I’m proud beyond all measure of it. And I think it’s important to try to impress that upon other guys in here: there is nothing holding you back but you. Believe me, I know: I held myself back for years.
