Prison education

Thank you for the balanced Justice page article "Prison Education Rankles Critics," Oct. 13. It's good to read of people who care about an inmate's success. There are many more around the country. I was fortunate to be accepted into a graduate-degree program sponsored by the New York Theological Seminary while I was at Sing Sing prison. The year's study of the Christian Bible changed my life, and I am now looking forward to going back to work. Donald Morritt, Wallkill, N.Y.
