These women should have paid attention in school, hung out with the right people, and they would not be in prison. Now, we take valuable time from others to re-train these types who will probably re-commit offenses and land back in prison. No sympathy from me for these criminals.

Now for the hard cold reality, no one is going to hire you. Doesnt matter if you have a business degree or phd, a criminal history seals the deal. Hello Burger King, minimum wage future.

The whole point is to give them some skills so that they don't feel forced to commit another crime because they see no other option. We should absolutely be doing something to get these people ready to reenter society with some useful skills. And kudos to these women for taking the initiative to get in the class in the first place.

Hey, wouldn't it be more productive to put them in a program that wouldn't encourage criminal behavior? All this will do is move them into the big time. I guess they have already demonstrated their qualifications!
