Dr. Peter Lindsay on Prison Education

Dr. Peter Lindsay is a professor of Philosophy and Political Science at Georgia State University, and a member of the GSU Prison Education Project. The three main goals of the PEP (from its website) are to:

  • Increase the number of incarcerated students and facilities we serve.
  • Engage on-campus students and provide them learning experiences by arranging academic exchanges between classrooms within prisons and those on traditional campuses.
  • Offer guidance to incarcerated students to help them continue their education after they are released from prisons.

Join us as Dr. Lindsay talks about the origin and status of the GSU PEP, and of the importance of education for rehabilitation and of rehabilitation for the betterment of society.
