A field trip to San Quentin California Oldest Prison

What if, instead of building prisons in remote locations, we put them near cities, accessible to family members and to the resources--educational, vocational, therapeutic, recreational, cultural--that are scarce in most prison towns?
What if, instead of walling out the world, we invited in volunteers by the hundreds to help prepare inmates for life outside--to put the correction in “corrections?”
What if we offered public tours, during which visitors could chat with prisoners beyond the earshot of corrections officers?
What if we allowed the prisoners to publish a newspaper and produce a radio program?
What you’ve just imagined is San Quentin, California’s oldest prison, housing the state’s felonious since 1852.
