Product description...

“Kids are in a jail cell all day long for months and months and months…They’re entitled to receive an education but no one has worked out how to provide that education.” —Senator Evie Hudak, D-Westminster, Colorado “It is refreshing to see information and concerns navigated towards our unique situation. It is not often that I find information specific to what we are doing.” —Robert Leyrer, Correctional Educator & Special Education Coordinator
