Prisoners' Guerrilla Handbook to Correspondence Programs in the U.S. and Canada: High School, Vocational, Paralegal and College Courses
Reviewed by Paul Wright.
The steady demise of educational programs in prison means that prisoners seeking an education can no longer rely on prisoncrats to provide it. While there are books on the market discussing correspondence courses, they are all aimed at non prisoners.
Prisoners' Guerrilla Handbook to Correspondence Programs in the U.S. and Canada is written by Missouri prisoner Jon Marc Taylor who has successfully completed B.S. and M.A. degrees by mail while imprisoned. This book offers a complete description of 212 programs that are ideal for prisoners seeking to earn high school diplomas, associate, baccalaureate and graduate degrees and vocational certificates. In addition to giving contact information for each school, Taylor includes tuition rates, text book costs, courses offered, transfer credits, time limits for completing course, whether the school is accredited, and if so by whom, and much, much more.
Taylor also explains factors to be considered in selecting an educational program and how to make meaningful comparisons between the courses offered for the tuition charged. No money to pay for school? Taylor covers that too. Any prisoner seeking to begin or continue their education behind bars will find this to be an invaluable road map. Cost is $21.95, plus $2 shipping. Contact: Audenreed Press, PMB 103, P.O. Box 1305, Brunswick, ME 04011. 1-888-315-0582.
