An Op-Ed by Michael Santos ran in the Washington Examiner yesterday. In the Op-Ed, Michael describes how many correctional facilities do not give the incarcerated a path to improve themselves and to be successful after release. However, MTC was a contrast:
For instance, earlier this year, I toured correctional facilities in Texas run by a company called Management & Training Corporation. The opportunities and programming afforded to people incarcerated there were highly impressive. It gave me hope that other facilities, privately and publicly run, might follow their lead. The re-entry program there teaches personal development and business principles and links local business leaders to inmates as mentors and advisers. These are exactly the kinds of programs that can help empower inmates to change their own lives and prevent recidivism.
