Inmates teaching inmates is 'fraud'

Posted: Thursday, June 10, 2010

I'm a citizen of Alaska who's been placed in the custody and care of Alaska's Department of Corrections. Many of Alaska's inmates are ordered to participate in court-ordered classes, which are to assist us in becoming up-standing citizens.

Thus, Cornell's programs are being taught by inmates and they are given certificates of completion, but this is to save funds. To me, it's fraud.

The state should provide proper instructors to retrain inmates in areas where many lack in judgment, which is the reason many of us are here.
