LAST WEEK'S QUESTION:
Gov. Andrew Cuomo has proposed offering prison inmates free college degrees. The plan would offer associate’s and bachelor’s degrees at 10 prisons in New York, at a cost of roughly $5,000 per year per inmate. Cuomo argues that the proposal would help reduce reoffending after release. North Country representatives Patty Ritchie, a Republican senator, Republican assemblymen Marc Butler and Ken Blankenbush, Democratic assemblywoman Addie Russell, and the Democratic chair of the St. Lawrence County Board of Legislators Jonathan Putney, have publically expressed disapproval of the plan, mentioning the struggle by many to pay back college loans.
Do you support free college education for inmates?
Would you like to see a St. Lawrence County prison selected as a program location?
