Posted October 12, 2018 09:00:30When a prison-style school closes its doors and a new school opens, many inmates who once attended the old school will be moving in.
The prison system is trying to re-educate inmates to the new school, which has no curriculum and no supervision, and the new place has its own rules.
But the new community school may not be for everyone.
And it will be a new experience for inmates and staff.
Inmates are often housed in overcrowded, unsupervised facilities.
And they face harsh treatment at times, like when a new prisoner was caught using drugs in a dormitory bathroom, or when a former inmate escaped from prison.
This is a tough environment for anyone.
But this is also a school that’s been open for almost 20 years.
In many ways, this is the first place inmates can get their education.
It’s also the first chance they’ve had to actually get to know the school.
This week, The Lad newspaper reported that about 50 inmates at the new prison school have already enrolled.
A school official told The Lad the number of students was growing quickly, and it was a great opportunity for them to get a better understanding of the school and its staff.
So we’re excited about this new school for inmates,” said Catherine Latham, the director of programs and programs at the prison.
She added that inmates would also be welcome to join the new students at the school as long as they were 18 and were not facing criminal charges.
The school is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday.
