Conversation Guide: Prison Policy

Keeping up with the rapid pace of news is an ongoing challenge for educators, particularly since the 2016 U.S. election. This series of discussion guides from the Institute for Democracy & Higher Education focus on topics that are in the news and provide an overview, suggested readings, and potential discussion questions. We believe these guides can help educators frame challenging discussions in the classroom and in co-curricular environments.

This conversation guide, created in May 2017, focuses on the implications of the Trump administration’s proposed changes to prison policy.
