        Crime, Punishment, and Rehabilitation: Higher Education in Prison | Dream On

        Should higher education be offered in prison? In this video from Dream On, a documentary about various obstacles in obtaining the American Dream, learn about how a college degree has changed the lives of two inmates.

        What do we want prisoners to experience in prison? Should prison sentences focus on punishment and societal retribution, where inmates suffer misery until their release? Or would we rather see a sentence be a time of rehabilitation, where inmates exit prison better-equipped to make good choices and become productive members of society? Explore all of these questions in the video and the accompanying resource materials.
