Reviews

Andrea Shipp
Great educational course with a lot of additional resources included.
Jo Ellen Fountain
The New Jim Crow is a necessary read but extremely dense material. This instructor breaks the learning down in a way that's accessible and meaningful. I'm so glad I took this class.
Amanda Glazier
Every educator should take this class. You will learn so much about the prison system that our students’ families deal with every day. You will become more aware of the privileges that we have not being tangled up in this system and be more comfortable talking with your students about their situations.
