Philosophy Mixed: Education in Prisons

By Kimberly Clay
Program Director

Education of incarcerated populations have shown to decrease recidivism rate and opens opportunities for those released from prison. Dr. Adam Key, Johnathan Lollar and Cesar Bernal dive into a discussion with Dr. Rebecca Farinas and Kimberly Clay on ways that education changes prison communities and the role of empathy as a teaching tool.

For more ways to get involved, join Johnathan and Cesar with Texas State’s Philosophy Youth Initiative Program which works with at-risk youth and juvenile offenders in the Hays County area. You can also reach out to Lee College Hunstville Center for volunteer opportunities.

KTSW is also working alongside the Inside Books Project this year and is accepting book donations for prisoners in Texas.

You can also listen to Dr. Key’s TEDx Talk here.
