Review by Hans Sherrer
All across the country DOC educational programs available to prisoners are being reduced or eliminated. That dire situation is compounded by the increasing denial of ready access by prisoners to information about outside educational opportunities. The recently released 2 nd Edition of the Prisoner's Guerrilla Handbook to Correspondence Programs goes a long way to helping fill the educational black hole many prisoners find themselves in.
The book provides contact information and an outline of the courses offered by over 250 educational providers, including many major universities. The book includes information on high school, vocational, paralegal, law, college and graduate courses.
The book has many useful tips and articles for the proactive prisoner, including how to acquire a college degree for less than $2,000. The Prisoner's Guerrilla Handbook to Correspondence Programs is an invaluable resource for any prisoner willing to work to improve their education so they can have a better chance to get a good job and create a life for themselves after their release.
