HARD TIME: TEENS IN MAXIMUM SECURITY PRISONS
Reports on prison life through the experiences of four new teenage
inmates--one only 13 years old. A follow-up two years later reveals the
impact of their incarceration on their minds and bodies, best summed up by
the words on one of the four: "This is not the place to be."
"LSSU is a relatively small school and I believe for this reason I have received a better education. The close atmosphere as opposed to a larger university has provided me with an opportunity to become acquainted with my professors. The professors therefore have an opportunity to assist with problems fairly easily, especially in upper level classes. The classes are fairly small also which provides one on one conversations which is very helpful."
