This week, we broadcast an interview digging into the problem of barriers to higher education during incarceration. This interview is between Kristina Byers and Anastazia Schmid, both  former inmates at the Indiana Women’s Prison. Anastazia speaks to the difficulties accessing a successful educational experience behind prison walls.

These interviews conducted on the barriers to higher education are made possible by a grant from the Lumina Foundation.

In today’s news, we share the words of prisoners at Indiana Women’s Prison who are suffering from extreme conditions and deprivations there.  The related petition can be found here.
