College Behind Bars: the Case for Higher Education in Prison

It’s the episode we’ve been looking forward to all year! Meet the winner of the 2021 Have You Heard Graduate Student Research Contest: Patrick Conway. When you listen to this episode, you’ll understand exactly why Patrick claimed this year’s top prize. His exploration of how we value prison education raises essential and relevant questionsabout who is entitled to be educated at tax-payer expense, what kind of education they should receive, and how we view crime. Congratulations to Patrick, and a big thanks to his former student JD Linares for putting in a special appearance. You can find a complete transcript of the episode here
