You wrote in June, “Princeton’s involvement in prison education began in the astrophysics department more than 15 years ago … and since 2017, the administrative work has been part of the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning.”

Forty-five years ago I taught nonviolent, first-time young male offenders at the Yardville Correctional Center. This experience qualified me for both the Student Volunteers Council and my teacher’s certificate. My supervisors were Neal Germershausen and Joe Tumolo.

My teachings spanned from readings of Chaucer (including one ribaldly comic selection) to by what qualifications would one select a team of 12 to colonize the moon.
